It wasn’t worth over a million. It was vodka. It was worth maybe $20, tops. Might be marketed for any sum, but it’s still friggin vodka.

but the bottle is made of both gold and silver, and for an added touch, the a cap is “encrusted with diamonds,” says BBC.

Yup, it’s the bottle.

“Did they 'ave shooters, guvnor?”


#5

Oh, I see. So, a $999,980 bottle with some vodka in it.


#6

Oh no, i’m so concerned over that bottle…


#7

Million dollar scotch comes in a dusty old bottle from a long closed distillery. Million dollar vodka comes in a million dollar bottle.


#8

Ain’t worth a million to me. I don’t even like vodka.


#9

The culprit looks very familiar…


#10

So, return the bottle filled with Stoli and it’s all good?


#11

Barkeep dispirited by brazen theft.


#12

Hum, that I don’t get. It is a neutral spirit. If you’d said you didn’t like hard liquor, that I would get.

I’m not sure I can say I like vodka, but I like to drink it. But I get the cheaper stuff-- Sobieski’s not bad.

And while I appreciate interesting bottles…

…a million dollar bottle is way too pricey for me. I don’t drink often enough to merit the fancy stuff. :slightly_smiling_face:

I’d rather have a million dollars worth of regular vodka.

Then again, that might be a bad idea.


#15

Just flip it for a profit.


#16

But the bottle does look like a brass fire extinguisher with an eagle on top and eagles are awesome.

Somewhere I heard, “There’s no difference in taste between a $20 vodka and a $100 vodka. The hangover, on the other hand…”

Fortunately it sounds as though you’re not consuming enough for that to be a problem.


#18

All the drunk and none of the flavor. No thanks.

I do think vodka has a taste to it, it isn’t pure ethanol and pure water after all. Flavor is generally downplayed and minimized but i think it’s a hugely important factor. I for one cannot stand vodka but i did get to drink the Crystal Head Vodka pictured on this thread, it’s not a flavored vodka but it has a subtle but distinct taste to it that was lovely and i quite enjoyed drinking it straight which was surprising to me.
