A luxury champagne maker has created what it’s calling the most expensive bottle in the world after encrusting the logo with a 19-carat diamond worth £1.2 million.
Handcrafted from 18-carat solid gold, Goût de Diamants’ Superman-style signature logo is centered by a single, flawless deep-cut white diamond weighing 19 carats, replacing the Swarovski crystal that normally inhabits the space.
The bottle was created for an unnamed private client. The label is also hewn from 18-carat solid white gold and is engraved with the client’s name.
Commissioned to create the one-of-a-kind bottle was Alexander Amosu, no stranger to pimping out other objects like iPhones and BlackBerrys.
In 2009, the designer from the UK also set a Guinness World Record for creating the most valuable suit. Made from gold thread, Himalayan pashmina, qiviuk and vicuna, the bespoke men’s suit took more than 80 hours and 5,000 stitches to create.
Meanwhile, inside the Goût de Diamants Brut Diamond bottle is a blend of Grand Cru Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier that offers a floral, refreshing and creamy texture and ends with a light and elegant finish, says the champagne maker.
