The worldâ??s most expensive and outrageously extravagant drinking tour, billed at $1,27 million (about R13,5 million) and created for serious oenophiles and spirits aficionados, includes a glass of collector’s champagne worth half a million dollars – and a diamond.
Ultimate Drink Connoisseursâ?? Holiday
Dubbed the Ultimate Drink Connoisseursâ?? Holiday, the tour takes guests on an around-the-world trip centred on some of the rarest beers, spirits, cocktails and wines in the world, including the Armand de Brignac Dynastie, a champagne collection worth almost $556 000 (over R5,5 million).
The Winston Cocktail, which holds the Guinness World Record for being the most expensive in the world, is also on the itinerary.
The elixir, which was appraised as being worth $12 970 (nearly R135 000) when it was admitted into the canon of records last year, is made with a shot of 1858 Croizet cognac worth $166 800 (over R1,7 million).
Diamond included with martini
And when sipping their $10 000 (over R100 000) martini at the Algonquin Hotel in New York, guests may want to make sure they donâ??t swallow the single piece of ice hiding behind their olive – a diamond from in-house jeweller Bader & Garmin.
The itinerary, created by UK-based Holidaysplease, also takes guests behind the scenes of the Dalmore distillery in Scotland and the Grey Goose factory in Cognac, France.
