Revolutionary Cognac and the Lanesborough
The Lanesborough Hotel in London recently began serving a revolutionary drink. Actually, the cognac it is offering is from the time of the French revolution, bottled in 1790. It is being served in small one and one-half ounce servings that cost £1,700 each. Unlike the $3,000 Bombay Sapphire martini, the drink doesn’t need to come with a pair of custom-made diamond and sapphire earrings to justify its price tag.
