WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE COGNAC
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the most expensive Cognac in the world?
Cognac is such prestigious liquor
that it must only be produced in the region of France for which it is named. In
addition to that, all cognac must be ninety percent comprised of three different
types of grapes that are found in that region – Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche, and
Colombard grapes. There is a list of criteria, including these two that the
cognac must meet before it is then turned over to the Bureau National
Interprofessionel du Cognac (BNIC) when they will determine if the liquor can
truly be called a cognac. All of this criteria makes cognac a very expensive
liquor but there is one that tops them all.
The most expensive cognac is Henri IV Dudognon
Heritage and it is named after a French king. This king’s family has been making
the cognac since 1776. The wine is placed in barrels where it will age for one
hundred years. These barrels need to be air dried for five years before any
cognac can be placed into them. The cognac that comes out of the barrels after
one-hundred-and-five years is 41% alcohol, making it 82 proof.
The bottle in which the cognac is placed also
contributes to it being the most expensive cognac in the world. The bottle is
dipped in twenty-four karat gold and sterling platinum before being decorated
with 6,500 brilliant cut diamonds. The total cost for this fine bottle of
cognac? $2 million USD.
