The bottle seen in the photo above is currently the most expensive bottle of alcohol in the world. All previous bottles of alcohol that used to be the most expensive in the world are no longer so. The Diamond Sterling, as this bottle of finest tequila is titled is worth $3.5 Million making it the most expensive bottle of alcohol in the world to date.
“The Diamond Sterling” is a creation of Fernando Altamirano (Hacienda La Capilla) who used 2.380 kg of pure platinum and 4,100 brilliant-cut diamonds to create this 1.3 liter bottle which was filled with a blend of three of the finest tequilas to create what’s allegedly the best tasting tequila ever.
Below is the induction video of The Diamond Sterling showing the moment when the most expensive bottle of alcohol in the world was first revealed to the public – in the presence of media. As said above, the value of The Diamond Sterling is $3.5 Million US and once the buyer is found (at an auction), the makers of the liquor are hoping to earn themselves a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the world’s most expensive bottle of alcohol.
The only question now remains – how would you drink tequila for which you have just paid $3.5 Million? Would you actually drink from that bottle or just archive it behind a bulletproof glass for your guests to see? But if so, than what’s a bragging right worth if you won’t even drink the booze you paid so much money for?
