How much money you would you pay for one shot of alcohol? Earlier this year Ranjeeta Dutt McGroarty, the founder and director of Trinity Natural Gas spent £10,014 (US$12,871) for one single shot of the world’s oldest cognac, and thus entered into the Guinness Book of World Records.
The limited edition Rome de Bellegarde was discovered in the cellars of Cognac house Jean Filloux by fifth-generation cellar master Pascal Filloux, and is believed to be the first blend created by Jean Filloux in 1894.
Now Rome de Bellegarde 1894 L’Eveil des Sens Cognac, can be ordered at a London-based M group restaurant, where guests will pay £2,514/10 ml shot or for £250,000 /one-liter decanter.
Zach Charilaou, M Restaurant director at Threadneedle Street, said: “This is an extremely exciting partnership for M and we can’t wait to start selling such an incredible Cognac. Our members and regular diners at M are very distinguished regarding their drinks choices so I have no doubt that they will be keen to try Rome de Bellegarde.”
David Smeralda, Rome de Bellegarde founder, said: “We’re delighted to establish this exclusive partnership in the UK with the M Group.
“Martin and the team have done a fantastic job at capturing the senses of the new millennials as well as a more mature crowd by creating a sublime and authentic dining experience which perfectly aligns with essence of our brand. We are looking forward to collaborating with the M Group within the forthcoming months.”
