Most Expensive Alcoholic Drinks in the World

#9 1811 Château d’Yquem – $130,000

And you heard about this drink too. It was produced by Château d’Yquem, a wine producer in the Bordeaux region of France. They’ve been in business for over 300 years.

They opened in 1711; first it was a vineyard established in the area which then survived several generations of owners and operators. But it survived that, and continued to produce a multitude of wines.

Among that multitude is Château d’Yquem and Ygrec. The 1811 Château d’Yquem is one of very few wines to have been given a perfect 100.

That mark was given by wine critic Robert Parker, who sampled it in 1999 and described it as ‘drinking liquified crème brûlée’.
