Here's a completely whale-worthy way to spend New Year's Eve: Armand de Brignac and XS Nightclub have announced their $1 million Armand de Brignac "Empire" Collection. Calling it the "ultimate NYE package," buyers will receive i18 bottles from Armand de Brignac's Brut Gold Champagne and Rosé Dynastie collections, ranging in size from standard 750ml bottles to the enormous 30L Midas bottle. The Midas bottle — which is the equivalent of 40 bottles of wine with dimensions similar to that of a small human — was recently added to the menu at Hakkasan in Vegas for a cool $275,000. As an added bonus, the Midas bottle and its wooden case have been painted by graffiti artist Alec Monopoly.
Because a million dollars is a lot to spend on Champagne and graffiti alone, the package also includes an all-expenses-paid trip to the Armand de Brignac facilities in France. That trip will include things like cellar tours and a chance to meet the winemaker. If spending $1 million on Champagne on New Year's Eve seems untoward, the XS also offers their signature $10,000 cocktail for two, a comparative steal. Below, the details of the Armand de Brignac "Empire" Collection:
