LONDON, Dec 17 — The same vintage Dom Pérignon champagne served at the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1981 and a 200-year-old cognac are among some of the items packed in a decadent Christmas hamper for the food lover who has everything.
British online luxury retailer VeryFirstto.com has come out with a holiday hamper for the rich and richer: The price tag is an eye-watering US$134,650 (RM471,160).
Because no matter how gourmand a food and wine aficionado your loved one may be, they’re unlikely, for instance, to have sampled a 200-year-old Cognac Jules Robin circa 1789 that has been stored in oak barrels for more than 70 years.
Likewise, the recipient will also be able to sample a drop of history with the Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon from 1961 that served as the official bubbly for the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1981.
Such auspicious champagne deserves fancy glassware.

A host of luxurious foodstuffs also fill the hamper, including a rare Almas caviar, truffles, foie gras, foie gras with truffles, a 25-year-old balsamic vinegar and a four-year-old aged, Joselito gran reserva ham from Spain.
To serve the different tins of luxury caviar, the hamper includes a pair of caviar spoons, dish, and bottle opener made with mother of pearl. — AFP-Relaxnews
