What’s the most expensive bottle of vodka you’ve ever seen? Was it $1,000 maybe? Well, the world’s most expensive bottle of vodka costs about $1.3 million and it just got stolen (I know, over a million dollars for a bottle of vodka is nuts). More importantly, the Russo-Baltique vodka was uninsured!
“I am obviously very upset. It was the icing on the cake in my collection. Of the 1,200 bottles I have, this was a very special bottle to have there,” Cafe 33 owner Brian Ingberg said. He reportedly got the bottle in Russia from a privately owned company called the Dartz Factory no more than six months ago.
Security footage from early Tuesday morning shows two masked people going behind the bar and stealing the vodka. “They then left with only one bottle, even though there are 1,200 bottles they could have taken,” Ingberg told TV2 Lorry. The Copenhagen police are currently investigating. According to the owner’s plea on Facebook, it is the only bottle that exists in the world. Er, shouldn’t it be a safe then?
Luckily for the owner, the Copenhagen police tracked the bottle down at a building site. However, the vodka had been drunk, but there is a happy ending as Ingberg says the bottle is still worth the same and he’ll just refill the bottle – looks like it all worked out in the end!
