…and I thought a $12 bottle of wine was expensive! Whoa!
Ever wonder how athletes celebrate their victories? Well back in 2011 the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup, a big deal right? Of course it is! So what better way to celebrate than head out to the bar and live it up a little…or in this case…a lot!
Just six members of the team racked up a staggering $156,679.74 bar bill at the MGM Grand in Mashantucket, Connecticut. However $56,679.74 of the tab went on the players working up the Dutch courage to make one final order that will go down in history: a $100,000 bottle of Ace of Spades Midas Champagne.
There were just six of the 30-litre bottles in existence prior to the one sold to the Bruins players.
Made by luxury brand Armand de Brignac and produced by Champagne house Cattier, it is the largest bottle of luxury Champagne in the world.
The gold metallic bottles are crafted entirely by hand, inspired by fashion designer Andre Courreges.
Each have two Ace of Spades insignias and four hand-applied pewter labels. They are housed in a black wooden case, lined with velvet and fitted with an engraved nameplate. Each is embossed with the Champagne’s royal crest.
