Vikram Barhat,’s king of luxe, was in excellent spirits today. Or, should we say, he got into some excellent spirits.

Vikram took a bullet for the team when he volunteered to attend a tasting for Louis XIII cognac, a specialty spirit produced by the House of Remy Martin since 1874 – it takes 300 kilograms of grapes to produce the content of a single bottle, which retails for $2,800.

The lush daytrip fell under the category of “research” for a story on investing in prize liquors slated for his Atypical Assets column in the September issue of Advisor’s Edge. Keep an eye out for it.

And, while we can’t bring a snifter of champagne cognac to your door, we can set you up with some links to Vikram’s other stories on luxe investments:
