Briton buys the world's oldest bottle of bubbly


At 170 years of age it is the oldest known bottle of champagne in the world.

Now, having been bought for 30,000 euros at auction, it is also the world’s most expensive. The bottle of Veuve Clicquot was bought by Ravi Viswanathan for his wife on the occasion of their 10th wedding anniversary. It was one of 145 bottles of wine discovered in a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea.

The couple showed off their bubbly at the restaurant they own in Singapore. They insist that it is still drinkable but they are waiting for the right occasion before popping the cork.
