Salvatore Calabrese’s bottle of 1738 cognac worth $78,000 which was intended for his record of most expensive cocktail this week was broken back in August 2012 as we reported it in CognacParadis.com (Aug. 10th 2012).
This did not stop him this week to beat the record of most expensive cocktail owned by The Skyview Bar at the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai, with a $6000 a glass.
Calabrese is the man known as the world vintage cognac expert having compiled a rare collection of vintage cognacs in its Playboy bar in London estimated at more than 1 million dollars.
Composed of 40ml of 1788 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac, 20ml of 1770 Kummel Liqueur, 20ml of 1860 Dubb Orange Curacao and two dashes of Angostura Bitters from the 1900s, the cocktail was bought by an undisclosed long-term client of Calabrese for about $8,800.
The Guiness World Record has yet to approve this record which will make Salvatore Calabrese’s cocktail the world’s most expensive cocktail and possibly oldest, as it includes a Cognac older than the French revolution and liqueur from the time of the American Revolution.
This revolutionary man has proved again that cognac is the epitome of luxury and the ultimate historical spirit.
