If you’ve a spare 3.4 million dollars, then perhaps you’ll be interested in what is being referred to as “The DNA of Cognac, the essence of the water of life…”

This unique bottle of Henry IV Cognac Dudognon Heritage is the most opulent and expensive bottle of cognac on the planet.  The bottle itself is made from handcrafted crystal, dipped in 24 carat yellow gold and platinum and finished off with the sparkling glory of 6,500 certified brilliant cut diamonds.

3,4 million dollar worth. The DNA of Cognac

Crafted by jeweller Jose Davalos, he followed a design created by the President of Ley.925 & Co, Paolo di Verachi.  The bottle weighs approximately 8 kg.

And as to be expected, the cognac that hides within this masterpiece is just as spectacular.  Lovingly encased inside is 100 ml of Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne – aged for over 100 years and with an alcohol content of 41%.

Maison Dudognon is in the very epicentre of Grande champagne, and the current heiress, Claudine Dudognon-Buraud has a bloodline that can be traced back to the French Kind Henri IV (1533-1610).
