Who doesn’t love a drink? What’s even better is when you splash out on the top shelf stuff. Nothing beats a little Black Label or maybe some good quality tequila. While forking out $100 for a tasty bottle of spirits is something most of us do when it’s a special occasion, for some, expensive alcohol drinks are the norm.
The rich and famous have no problem handing over hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars for a unique blend of high-quality spirit. But sometimes even those making the big bucks are floored by the price of alcohol. There are some drinks out there that are worth millions of dollars! That’s right, over $1 million!
These one-of-a-kind tipples constitute some of the most expensive liquor and spirits on the market. Many of these expensive drinks are more than just incredibly tasting alcoholic drinks. They are packaged in bottles adjourned with jewels or come with extras that push the price into seven figures.
If you’re wondering what makes our list of the most expensive alcohol bottles in the world, read on and prepare to get thirsty.
15. Bombay Sapphire Revelation – $200,000
One of the most recognized gin brands in the world is also responsible for one of the most expensive alcoholic drinks of all time. Bombay Sapphire Revelation is your standard Bombay Sapphire gin, but it’s the bottle it’s housed in that makes this spirit so expensive. The bottle is cut in the shape of a diamond and is adorned with sapphires and diamonds. It has ten sides to the gem, each representing the different botanicals used in the process of making the gin.
The bottle is made in conjunction with jewelers Garrard and crystal brand Baccarat. As you can see from the image above, the results are spectacular. Only five of these bottles were ever produced with the profits from the sales going towards a variety of different charities.
14. Armand de Brignac Midas – $265,000
This champagne is loved by rappers, and for good reason. It’s owned by the legendary Jay-Z. The hip-hop mogul took ownership of the company in 2014 and has made millions of dollars selling the stuff around the world. What makes this version of Armand de Brignac so special is the gold bottle it comes in. Oh yeah, and the fact that it is a 30-liter bottle, which is equivalent to 50 750 ml bottles of Armand de Brignac.
Standing roughly four feet tall and weighing around 100 pounds, there is no bottle of champagne quite like Armand de Brignac Midas.

It is vatted from three sherry Spanish oak casks. The first was filled in 1942, the second in 1945, and the third in 1946. This process helps create the distinct taste of this whisky.
Only four of these bottles of The Macallan were produced, with each said to have been made from hand-cut crystal and weighing a whopping 25 pounds when full.
12. 1945 Romanee-Conti Wine – $ 558,000
This bottle of wine sold at auction in 2018 for a touch over half a million in 2018. The single bottle of 1945 Romanee-Conti Wine is the highest-selling 750ml bottle of Burgundy in history. The reason for its rarity is that this particular bottle was not only produced in the fabled town of Vosne-Romanée, but only 600 bottles were ever made. Not only that, but the vines used to create this delicious drop were destroyed after this vintage and replaced with
