Nice $77K, 224yo Cognac Bottle! Oops…
July 26, 2012
Here’s something groan-worthy. A customer at London’s Playboy Club recently managed to destroy a $77,615 (£50,000) bottle of historic Cognac, which dated back to 1788.
The Drinks Business tells us that the customer, a businessman with apparentlyexpensive tastes and butter fingers, had ordered two glasses of the brandy for $7,839 (£5,000) a pop when he asked to look at the bottle. When he stood up, he sent it flying across the room. It broke into smithereens upon hitting the floor.
