French black raspberry liqueur Chambord has released what is believed to be the world’s most expensive spirit bottle.
Valued at $2,000,000, leading UK jeweller Donald Edge has taken the distinctive orb-shaped Chambord bottle and covered it with over 60 carats worth of diamonds including a square cut emerald diamond, round pearls and hand-wrought eighteen carat yellow gold.
The bottle, whose value is currently being assessed by the Guinness World Records, was created to celebrate the launch of the new stage production of Breakfast at Tiffany’s in London.
“To be asked to recreate a jewelled Chambord bottle to celebrate the launch of Breakfast at Tiffany’s is such an honour,” said Edge. “The bottle itself, a Royal orb, is such an iconic design – to encrust it in diamonds, pearls and gold only enhances its natural beauty – it is a work of art.”
Chambord has a long association with fashion and glamour and will be hosting the Chambord Shine Awards, celebrating emerging Australian fashion designers, in Sydney tomorrow night (Oct 20).
