Most expensive shot of cognac
InterContinental Hong Kong
68,000 UK pound(s) sterling
China Hong Kong ()

The most expensive shot of cognac was bought for HK$ 68,000 (£7,072) at the InterContinental Hong Kong, in Hong Kong, China, on 9 November 2016.

This shot of cognac comes from a bottle of 1858 Cuvée Leonie. This special 155 year old cognac, known as Pre-Phylloxera, was made before the global vine/grape disease which destroyed most vineyards in the 1870s, so the grapes used to make it are unique and now extinct.
