Vodka is indeed a fine drink. It can be mixed with a variety of other beverages and ingredients in order to make hundreds of combinations. On top of that, there is a whole new level of drinking when someone can spend over ten thousand dollars on a bottle of vodka without hesitation. From Russia’s finest to the most elaborate bottle making, these are the most expensive vodka in the world.

And indeed, not many do, for even these most expensive vodka in the world are often bought and retained as collector’s items, rather than consumed for their sheer taste.

10- Alizé Rose Valentine’s Day edition
As a Valentine’s present, vodka can be great; it can be shared and can lead to a great night with your lover. But this seems a little out of the box. Liqueurs and Cognac producer Alizé launched a limited edition bottle of its Rose expression in 2007. Containing passion fruit, strawberry fruit juices and rose, this bottle was meant to express love while also getting you drunk. At the same time the bottle contained white Swarovski crystals which took over 100 hours to put into each bottle.
More examples of the most expensive vodka in the world can be found on the following pages.
9- Imperial Collection Super Premium Vodka
This vodka may not be the best, but the bottle is certainly amazing. It looks like a golden Easter Egg. The bottle gives the feeling of royalty as soon as you hold it in your hands. The hand-crafted egg contributes to the hefty price tag.
8- Stoli Elit: Himalayan Edition
This vodka looks executive. It is finesse, personified in a bottle. According to the company that makes it, Stolichnaya, it mixes pure water from the Himalayas with Russian winter wheat. On top of that the bottle is made of hand-blown glass, and each bottle comes with a gold-plated ice pick. The ice pick comes in handy once you finish the bottle and realize you spent $3,000 dollars on it.
7- Iordanov Vodka
When deciding a way to celebrate the history of alcohol, Iordanov had an amazing idea to create a luxury vodka product. Apparently it uses water collected from a hidden waterfall in Northern Europe. If that is not luxurious enough, it has over 14,000 Swarovsky crystals embedded in the bottle. Russians cannot get enough crystals apparently.
6- Oval Swarovsky Crystal Vodka
Another Swarovsky crystal bottle of vodka; prices keep going up and up. Maybe they should focus less on the bottle and more in the vodka? But then again, who can tell the difference between a $4,000 bottle and a $6,000 bottle if not for the amount of crystals it has on the bottle. This luxury collection was launched as a limited edition, with a focus to provide a unique blend of taste and elegance. It is only available at the best nightclubs in London. So go there, get a table and enjoy the beautiful crystals in the night.
5- Belver Bears
At least this one does not have crystals all over it. The magnificent new vodka was recently announced by a manufacturer by the name of Belver Bears. This prestigious limited-edition was launched during the Cannes festival in France and was served only to selected VIP’s. The bottle is designed by Jean-Roch, and it is amazing. It looks exactly like a bear; a bear full of expensive vodka. At least the bottle can be a nice decoration for the house after it’s emptied.
4- Russo-Baltique Vodka
So we moved from really expensive vodka to vodka that only people like Bill Gates might drink. The design and liquor blend was quite successful for a very first attempt. Its design is significantly different and exclusively amazing. The bottle looks like if it was from the 17th century. For that amount of money, I hope there is a treasure inside of it and not just a hangover awaiting you.
3- DIVA Premium Vodka
This vodka goes over the top. The center of it is made out of precious stones and the liquor is made out of natural spring water filtered through glacial ice and crushed diamonds. This bottle is a special gift for millionaires to enjoy while counting their money.
2- Russo-Baltique Vodka (New Version)
Not being content enough with their previous bottle that was under a million, Russo-Baltique decided to make a new bottle. The cap of the bottle is created with yellow and gold, while the diamonds used make up the Russian Imperial Eagle replica on it. The vodka was created specifically to target the rich liquor connoisseurs, Russian royalty, and business tycoons. Prince Albert was the first person to own one of the bottles. If you ask me, it looks like an old radio. But I am no Russian tycoon so I can’t really have an opinion I guess.
1- Billionaire Vodka
And our number one ladies and gentleman, the most expensive vodka in the world is actually called Billionaire Vodka. Leon Verres, the luxury designer had already made a line of exclusive Billionaire Champagne, but he didn’t want to stop there; he needed a much stronger drink to design and brand. Each bottle carries up to five liters of exclusive vodka, developed using a secret Russian recipe. However, the most amazing element of the liquor content is that the distilled liquid is poured over diamonds that themselves are worth many millions of dollars. The bottle is decorated with over 3,000 diamonds and Swarovski crystals and fur.
These are the most expensive vodkas in the world. It is incredible to think that there are people willing to buy these vodkas. For now I am just happy that I can consume something other than bottom shelf vodka. Russians sure do know how to “crystallize” a good bottle of Vodka, that is the only thing I know for sure.
