Top 10 most expensive empty bottles

1. Rémy Martin Louis XIII Black Pearl – US$8,000 (£4,693)


And finally, the pièce de résistance. Made from baccarat crystal, this rare Cognac bottle is safely displayed in its original cushion-lined container. The temptation to shine it every day would be unbearable to any well-respected bottle enthusiast – the likes of which this bottle certainly deserves. Just make sure you don’t have one lying around the house currently doubling up as a detergent bottle.

  1. I’d dare argue that some of these bottles gets refilled and sold again – fakers have, sadly, also entered this market long ago

  2. I will keep an eye out for these treasures!

  3. I have a gallon bottle of Courvoisier (empty of course!) but it is shaped totally differently – like an old gallon jug, but without the handle. I tried to find out when it was made, or any other etcetera about it, but was unable to do so. Any thoughts – anyone? Incidentally, I payed $125 for it when it was full about ten years ago. It was completely dust covered at that time.

      I know this post is very old – but I just had a very good friend who collects say how very much he wants/ has looked for this bottle, specifically. When I went looking & saw your post, I knew I had to inquire(!)
      Do you still have it, by chance? Would be super interested to know the price, if you did & we’re still interested in selling.

      Thanks very much!
