Rare Cognac With World-Record Pedigree To Be Sold For $157,000 - #Luxury #Drinks

Want to throw one back like a billionaire? This bottle of Croizet Cuvée Léonie predates both the French wine blight and the American Civil War. One of a handful of such bottles in existence, the 1858 vintage will be available at New York’s Financial District Wine & Liquor in July for $157,000.
