Bombay Gin

Ultimate airport souvenir: $200,000 bottle of gin

The holidays are – ready or not – just around the corner.

So you and Santa better start putting your heads together to start finding gifts for everyone on your list.

If you know someone who’s been very, very good and who likes very, very expensive gin, then the folks at the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) have made it easy.

The international duty free store at the airport is currently exhibiting – and selling – one of five bottles of Bacardi’s Bombay Sapphire Revelation super premium gin.

The price: $200,000 for the specially-designed, translucent blue decanter shaped like a giant gemstone with a stopper decorated with diamond and sapphires. (Profits will benefit charity.)

One bottle not enough? The four other bottles are on display in airports in London, New York, Dubai, Singapore, and Sydney.

By the way, I’ve been very, very good.
