The Lanesborough Hotel in London acquired the world's oldest bottle of cognac, distilled in 1770, and is offering it to patrons of their plush Library Bar (above) for £4,000, or about $6,000, per shot. That's considerably more than the ultra-expensive Louis XIII Black Pearl Magnum cognac, which cost $2,500 per shot. Photo from Luxist.com. http://www.comandon.com/
Like the name suggests, the stylish bar located within the Lanesborough Hotel is designed like a library with bookcases and leather chairs with dimmed lighting. They have an excellelent collection of drinks including vintage cognacs and cocktails. They often have celebs visiting the stylish lounge bar for a cocktail or a well poured pint.
