3. Cognac: The Last Drop Distillers’ Hors d’Âge Grande Champagne Cognac 

The Last Drop team discovered the cognac cask in 2018 and found it contained enough liquid for fewer than 200 bottles.

The Last Drop Distillers specializes in seeking out and finding remarkable spirits that have been thought long-lost, if not forgotten, and bringing them to discerning drinkers. Their latest discovery is an old family estate in the heart of the Grande Champagne region, where they uncovered a very special cask at the back of a cellar. The cognac had been hidden there in 1940, behind a hastily built wall, to save it from advancing German forces. Distilled in a small, traditional wood-fired still, this exceptional cognac will comprise just 182 bottles, each priced at $5,160, and is part of the marque’s Limited Bottling range.
