World’s priciest bottle of champagne on sale for £2million – but there’s a huge catch

British bubbly entrepreneur Shammi Shinh decorated the magnum with work from creators of digital NFT art popular with stars including Justin Bieber and Madonna.

It is also embellished with Swarovski crystals and pewter.

Priced at 2,500 Ethereum, a cryptocurrency, it is being sold online and is expected to be traded several times until the eventual owner can get their hands on the physical bottle.

Shinh said: “This bottle features art from NFT collections that have over a billion dollars in sales.

“I wanted to create something timeless for the modern investor, nothing less of a masterpiece. In order to receive the physical champagne bottle, the buyer will need to burn the NFT.

“The champagne itself is a work of art and unmatched quality.”

In 2013, Shinh released Taste of Diamonds champagne at £1.5million — encrusted with gems and featuring in videos by One Direction and Flo Rida.

The Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs are popular with celebrity buyers including Justin Bieber, Madonna, Kevin Hart, Neymar Jr, Jimmy Fallon, Tom Brady, Paris Hilton, Snoop Dogg, Logan Paul and Eminem.
