A Danish thief has seized what is considered the most expensive bottle of vodka in the world.
Brian Ingberg, owner of Café 33 – the Copenhagen bar that housed the bottle, made of gold, silver and a diamond-encrusted lid – posted a message about the disappearance of the sumptuous liquor on Facebook.
He shared a photo of the bottle next to a security camera showing a man with his face hidden under a white baseball cap and a high turtleneck sweater, drinking the drink from the establishment.
Ingberg said in his Facebook post that someone entered Cafe 33 “with a key” and stole Russo-Baltic vodka. It is estimated that the bottle is worth about $ 1.3 million. The bottle was produced by a car manufacturer called Dartz Motorz, based in Latvia, according to Newsweek.
The design of the bottle is a recognition to a former Russian car manufacturer that stopped production in 1917, following the Russian revolution, according to Deutsche Welle.
The owner of Café 33 stated that the bottle was not insured, and that it does not even belong to the establishment or its owner. A Russian entrepreneur would have lent it to the school to show it.
The Associated Press has been informed by Danish police investigator Knud Hvass that they have not yet determined how the thief entered the bar.
According to Ingberg’s Facebook post, it offers a reward for the return of the bottle and / or the capture of thieves.
