You must have heard about the world’s most expensive house, shoes or rings, but what about the world’s most expensive alcoholic drinks? Those who have money can buy anything then it doesn’t matter if it is a ridiculously expensive drink.
Ever since the world was introduced to the pleasure of drinking, there has been a remarkable improvement in the tastes of alcoholic drinks for creating a better, more refined taste. The price of a drink depends on various factors such as ingredients used, the method, the packaging, and how old it is (the older, the better or should we say, the older, the pricier). Even the brand name plays an important part.
The drinks with hefty price tags are for affluent people. But don’t worry if you can’t afford as there are always cheaper options available. We’ve rounded up a list of the outrageously priced alcoholic beverages in 2018. Let’s have a look at our list of top 6!
Sixth on our list is Diva Vodka that is worth $1.3 million. The production of Diva Vodka involves a meticulous distilling process through precious stones. To ensure the authentic opulent taste, the content is also gone through filtration with precious stones. It comes with a bottle that is too pretty, having precious crystals stored inside its center. Want to gift the crystals away or want to save them as a keepsake? Just take ‘em out!
The Mendis Coconut Brandy is launched by an American distillery. They used premium ingredients from Sri Lanka and aged for two years in rare wood casks to make produce the first clear brandy in the world.

What makes this liquor 11 times pricier than the second place holder? No doubt it is made from the sweetest lemons off the coast of Italy and distilled by the Antica Distillereria.
