London-based luxury champagne maker Goût de Diamants has created what the company calls the most expensive bottle of champagne in the world. Known for brewing fine champagnes sold at very exorbitant prices, the company outdid itself by creating the priciest bottle of its bubbly so far — carrying an outrageous price tag of £1.2 million!
The bottle of the effervescent drink was specially created for an undisclosed client and contains Goût de Diamants’ standard Brut Diamond champagne which is described as a fine blend of Grand Cru Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier that offers a floral, refreshing and creamy texture and ends with a light and elegant finish.

If a cup of coffee from the neighborhood Starbucks is too ordinary for you, then you have to try Black Ivory Coffee. This brand of coffee, which originates from a remote mountainside in Thailand, is not only expensive at $50 per cup, it is also only served in some of the world’s most expensive hotels located in northern Thailand, the Maldives and Abu Dhabi.
Apart from its high price tag and exclusivity, what’s more interesting about this new brew is the process each coffee bean has to go through before it ends up in a cup. You see, Black Ivory Coffee came from elephant dung, very similar to Indonesia’s Kopi Luwak (civet coffee), another exorbitantly priced coffee “processed” by Asian Palm civet. Read more
Water is the most precious liquid on earth. Every living creature needs water to survive. But for the wealthy, ordinary water just won’t quench their thirst. Just like everything else that they wear, touch, ride on, live in, eat and drink, a basic need like water must be something fancy enough such that the rest of the world could not afford to get their hands on.
There have been plenty of designer water out there. Some sourced from the most secluded of locations while others contained in the most exquisite bottles made of precious materials and bedecked with jewels. However, all of them will not match the superiority of the Aurum 79.
At $900,000 per bottle, the Aurum 79 is currently the world’s most expensive bottled water. The bottle alone is crafted from the finest crystal glass and adorned with pure 24-carat gold and embedded with a total of 113 dazzling diamonds.
For the rich, greasy burgers and fries at McDonald’s just won’t work! These stuff are just too lowly and won’t satisfy hunger much more, feed the ego. Here is a list of the most insanely expensive food stuff in the world.
Yubari King Melons
This cantaloupe cultivar is prized for its juicy sweetness and beautiful proportions. To be able to bear that name, melons must be grown in the small Japanese town of Yubari, which only produces a limited number of the fruit each year. A perfectly matched pair can fetch as much as $26,000 during auctions. Regular Yubari melon, on the other hand, can damage you between $50 and $100 in Japanese department stores.
Ohio-based fast food chain Wendy’s is offering more than just regular burgers and fries when it re-opened its Tokyo store. After its almost two-year hiatus in Japan, the fast food chain re-opened this week in the Ometsando district of Tokyo, with new and fancy items on its menu.
