Against the Trends

While the 2009 liquor trends show Americans buying cheaper liquor, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York is unveiling the world’s priciest liquor bottle. With more than 60 carats worth of diamonds including 1,100 round cut diamonds, princess and pear cut diamonds, a square cut emerald diamond, round pearls, and 18 carat yellow gold, the Chambord Black Raspberry Liquor bottle is worth $3 million.

Designed by Donald Edge and unveiled by Betsy Johnson, the $3 million bottle will be sold and proceeds will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Coalition. As a breast cancer survivor, Betsey Johnson was a fitting choice to unveil the incredible bottle.

After Chambord by Donald Edge is sold, it will be entered into the Guinness World Records for the most expensive bottle beating the last record holder by over $2.5 million. Prior to Edge’s creation, the world record was held by a Platinum & White Gold Tequila bottle priced at $225,000.

Try a non-diamond encrusted bottle of Chambord for around $40.

Watch and see the Chambord bottle be treated like royalty.
