The most expensive bottle of Champagne ever sold in London fetched £80,000 at a new members' club last Thursday.
New Park Lane's OneForOne Park Lane opened its doors to a host of celebrity guests, including Amber Le Bon, Alice Dellal, Sadie Frost, Jasmine Guinness, Jade Parfitt, Goga Ashkenazi, Lisa B, Suki Waterhouse and Tali Lennox. However, in a sign that London still has its fair share of affluent individuals, a record was broken with the most expensive bottle of Champagne ever purchased in London, being bought by an unknown European businessman.
The bottle in questions was an £80,000 bottle of Armand de Brignac (Ace of Spades) Champagne, called a "Nebuchadnezzer", there are only two of these bottles in the world. Each one takes six months to make, being hand crafted by eight expert glass artisans.
OneForOne only took delivery of the bottle the afternoon before it was sold and needed two staff members to carry the bottle and three staff members to pour every time someone wanted a drink. Club Director Vladimir Gelev said, "I couldn’t comment on who purchased the bottle, but we only received delivery of it yesterday; now I have to put another order in. Maybe we should buy a case of them!"
