Diva Vodka
Price: $1,060,000

Diva

This bottle of vodka hails from Scotland and its price is the result of how much “bling” you want your bottle to have. The bottle can be encrusted with precious gems: diamonds, rubies, sapphires, etc. Blackwood Distillers makes this triple distilled vodka that is ice-filtered through Nordic birch charcoal and then for some reason is passed through a sand of crushed diamonds and other gems.

Spluch Tequila

Price: $ 160,000
This bottle originally purchased from France by Thomas Jefferson, who was an avid wine collector. This bottle is a Bordeaux and was sold at an auction in 1985 to Christopher Forbes.

MacallanThis bottle of single malt whiskey in a LaliqueCire Perdue decanter was sold in 2010 at an auction, with the proceeds going to charity.
