The Last Drop is a company that released “The Last Drop Whisky” in 2008, now they release a rare vintage brandy: A cognac, that comes from casks of a small distillery, lost in the woods near Cognac. After sixty years most of the Cognac had evaporated.

Ther are only 278 bottles, and each bottle costs $2,700. The bottle can be purchased via Infinium Spirits in the U.S.

The hand bottled Cognac is sealed with wax, and comes in a velvet-lined leather box. You also get a 50ml miniature bottle.

It’s a 1950 Vintage Cognac

The Last Drop and importers told TheLuxist.com:

“It was a long, time consuming journey to locate the casks, but we feel privileged to be able to share these precious bottles with those who appreciate fine cognac. The opportunity to own a bottle of The Last Drop Cognac is extremely limited, since there are only 478 bottles available worldwide and it’s among the best cognac offerings available. It fills a niche in the market for our customers.”

So let’s face it: It’s a cognac that aged for more than 60 years in an oak barrel – that’s quite interesting. Question remains, how the people from The Last Drop found that oak casks and if the story is really that romantic, or just a little, little marketing gag. In any case, it’s the last drop… and if they sell all those bottles, the company will make some $750 000.

What’s next? The Last Drop of Rum… or The Last Drop of Gin?
