For premium liquor collectors, there could be virtually nothing better than to lay hands on an entire collection of rare liquors. No wonder the

Years ago, Mr. Bunt who happens to be a complete teatotaler, had promised his wife that he would sell his entire liquor collection by the time she retires. Now to make good on that promise, he is selling of the entire collection of rare liquor, which is known to be the largest in the world of its kind. Over the years, Mr. Bunt grew his collection further by bidding at famous auction events like that of Sotheby’s and Christie’s, and also buying from premium restaurants like the La Tour de Argent in Paris, and ended up creating this set of unique bottles, many of which are the last surviving of their kind. The star of them all however, is the 1795 Brugerolle Cognac 6-liter bottle, which is known to have been carried by French emperor Napoleon Boneparte during his conquests. Though individually priced at $170,000, Mr. Bunt is mainly looking at a buyer who would buy bigger chunks of the collection including this Cognac, and if possible, the entire lot all together.
