$100,000 Champagne Bottle With the Midas Touch

armand-de-brignac-midas.jpgIf you're desperately looking for a way to burn a hundred grand before tax season begins, you may want to look into buying this golden Armand de Brignac bottle, because at least you'll catch a little buzz while you shelter your assets.

The myth of King Midas, the man who was blessed (and cursed) with the ability to turn anything he touched to gold, has inspired many things but few as lavish as Midas bottle from Armand de Brignac. According to wine bottle naming code, Melchizedek is the term usually used to describe a 30-liter vessel equivalent to 40 regular-sized 750ml bottles but perhaps Midas makes more sense for this bottle which weighs in at 100 pounds.
