Yes, a 40ml serve of Rome De Bellegarde Cognac that was sold for £10,014 has set a new world record.

Only 67 bottles of Rome de Bellegarde has been decanted with the very first 40ml serving being bought by Ranjeeta Dutt McGroarty, Gunniess World Records confirmed on their website.

The 40ml serving of the rare and super-rich alcohol was sold at Hyde Kensington Bar on Wednesday night, where Ranjeeta Dutt McGroarty, Founder and Director of Trinity Natural Gas tasted the drink.
