Rare bottle of Cognac Frapin sold for over $20,000
Spirits like cognacs and whiskies are always on the wish-list of connoisseurs of ultra-fine liquor, especially if they have been matured with age. Yesterday, we had told you about a rare 153-year-old bottle of cognac from the house of Cognac Croizet sold to a Chinese buyer, and also established world record for being the most expensive cognac ever sold at auction. Yet again a cognac has set the cash registers ringing at a auction by Bureau Interprofessional de Cognac. The 26-year-old bottle of Cognac Frapin was auctioned for $20,088. The proceeds from this event will go towards the charitable cause of development of a medical care center in Rochefort Charente Maritime.
The particular series of rare cognacs from 1985 vintage has been known for its distinctive flavors which are symbolic of the cellars of Chateau Fontpinot. The aromas and taste linger on your palate for a considerable amount of time, leaving behind and unveiling the specialties of the region. Also to be noted is that this series of cognac comes from a single estate of Grande Champagne, which makes it rare and of high novelty value. Looking at few years back, one might want to note that this was the same blend used to create another special blend with the 1982 & 1983 varieties, and final product actually ended up winning several laurels at the International Spirits Challenge 2008. The winner of this super-special bottle of Cognac was Mr. Thierry Benitah, a known figure amongst high-end liquor connoisseurs. This successful bid contributed to a large profit of around $134,724 at event.
