The Rose Club at The Plaza hotel is offering a shot of a limited-edition cognac that costs more than the average New Yorker’s monthly rent.
Called the Louis XIII Black Pearl Magnum, a single drink of the Remy Martin-produced spirit goes for $2,500 and cannot be sampled anywhere else in the State of New York.
“It’s Remy Martin, known for making the best cognac in the world,” said Rose Club manager Anthony Evangelista. “There’s a certain prestige factor. … The Plaza Hotel and the Remy Martin Louis XIII go hand in hand.”
