Danish police are investigating the theft of a bottle of vodka claimed to be the world’s most expensive at $1.3m (£960,000).

 

The bottle, made from gold and silver and with a diamond encrusted cap, was on loan to a Copenhagen bar which had a collection of vodkas on display.

Police say it is not clear if the thief, who struck early on Tuesday, broke in or had a key.

Mr Ingberg, owner of the Cafe 33 bar, told broadcaster TV2 that he had borrowed the bottle from the Latvia-based Dartz Motor Company.

“It has been part of my collection for six months, but not any more,” he said.

Russian luxury car maker Russo-Baltique is said to have created the vodka to commemorate the centenary of the company’s factory.

The front of the bottle is decorated with leather and has a replica of the radiator guard used for Russo-Baltique cars.

The cap is shaped like a a Russian imperial eagle and is encrusted with diamonds.

Mr Ingberg said the bottle had featured in an episode of House of Cards as a gift from the Russian president to his US counterpart.

Dartz founder Leonard Yankelovich told the BBC he was hopeful he would get the bottle back.
