One of the world's most expensive drinks is being auctioned online for $157,000, maintaining its status as one of the world's most expensive drinks. The Cuvee Leonie by Cognac Croizet has been aged since 1858, and has since been passed from aristocrat to aristocrat until finally, it has reached North America and is being made available in the Big Apple.
The bottle being sold is one of the few that has survived the years of war and unrest since 1858, increasing its worth. Its outlandish price is also made valid due to the cognac's history; apparently, Winston Churchill and General Eisenhower plotted the Allies to victory during WWII over a bottle of Cuvee Leonie from the same year.
If you've got the dough and want to emulate Winston Churchill, then perhaps the Cuvee Leonie is for you.
