The Details: Imagine being able to sip a snifter of brandy that dates back to the early 19th Century. It's possible, and it's one heck of a Christmas gift for him!
This bottle of Cognac Grande Champagne Château de Compiègne dates back to 1818, to the time of Napoleon 1st. It actually bears the seal and emblem of Napoleon, as it belonged to his private collection before his death in 1821. It has belonged to French kings and emperors, and it's a cognac worth every penny.
Price: Pricing on the bottle of 1818 cognac will vary, but compare it to other similarly aged vintages, and you can expect to pay no less than $85,000-$90,000. So worth it for an addition to a fancy wine or liquor collection!
