We don’t know what you might think, but we’ve stumbled across what could possibly be one of the strangest uses of Remy’s Louis XIII Cognac imaginable.

It’s the Dragon Dog

DougieDog Hot Dogs – an eatery in Vancouver, Canada, that produces all-natural hot dogs for its diners, has just launched its latest creation – the Dragon Dog.  Coinciding with the Chinese New Year of the Dragon, this hot dog is infused with Remy Martin Louis XIII Cognac – and is also a plug for the establishment’s appearance on the Canadian version of the popular entrepreneurial TV programme – Dragon’s Den.

The Dragon Dog consists of a 12 inch long bratwurst sausage that contains precious drops of the eaux-de-vie.  It also boasts fresh lobster and Kobe beef seared in truffle and olive oil, and is topped off with a picante sauce.

The Haute Dog XIII

Designer and restaurant proprietor, Dougie Luv, said of his latest masterpiece, “In designing this hot dog I wanted to come up with something super tasty and high-end that stays true to the traditional identity of the hot dog — a hot dog that any hot dog lover would enjoy.”

For diners who want to sink their teeth into a Dragon Dog, this little number will set you back $100 dollars.  And it appears that it’s not a limited edition hot dog, but one that will appear on the menu for a while, making us wonder how many bottles of Louis XIII they’ve put aside for making them.

DougieDog is claiming that this is the first hot dog to ever sell for three figures.  It beats the current Guinness Book of Records holder – the ‘Haute Dog,’ that is sold in New York’s Serendipity Restaurant for $69 dollars.
