The story goes like this: there is this Italian luxury brand Montegrappa that collaborated with Polish brand Wealth Solutions to bring this limited-edition fountain pen to you.

Wealth Solutions bought this bottle of Gautier Cognac in a rare wines and liquor auction organized by Bonhams Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers in NYC. Along with the purchase, they also received a title for this as the oldest cognac sold at a public auction to-date.
The pen contains the world’s oldest cognac. It actually holds just a drop of Gautier from 1762 in a special capsule mounted in the pen’s cap.

“Our search for uniqueness in creating rare collectibles had to lead us to the world to pens. Montegrappa is one of the most respected creators of fountain pens. They did a great job bringing our idea to life.
The Cognac pen perfectly fits the great and diverse collection of writing instruments I have seen in Bassano, the home of Montegrappa. I believe it will find favour with both pen and rare spirits aficionados worldwide” said Maciej Kossowski, President of Wealth Solutions.
The ink isn’t the only liquid inside of this pen, making it a record-setting, high-end spirit-cognac-pen.
The body of this Cognac Pen and its cap are made from oak wood, while embellished with grapevine motifs on its entire body, reminding us of the noble French liquors.
The pen is available in varied thickness while the materials used vary, like sterling silver or gold for the men version, and sterling silver for women.
But what do you do if, say, you empty the pen?
They’ve thought about that too! It can be refilled by a converter or a cartridge. The version for men is 155,5 mm in length, while the version for women can stretch up to 130 mm.
I wonder why they made the women’s bigger?!
Anyway, only 110 pieces of this pen were produced, hence the limited-edition tag. Each of the 10 Gold Cognac Pen is up for sale for approximately $18,000, while each of 100 Silver Cognac Pen is available for $5,900.
