Luxe Cognac and Cigars at London's Lanesborough

Posted: Nov. 19th, 2008  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Hotels: London's famed Lanesborough Hotel has cemented its position as the city's most luxurious spot for brandy and cigars with the addition of a new walk-in humidor and the acquisition of a 240-year-old bottle of cognac. The five-star Regency-style St. Regis property on Hyde Park Corner in Knightsbridge is home to London's most expensive hotel room, the Royal Suite, which costs ?8,000, or about $12,000, per night.

The new humidor, the first of its kind in a London hotel, houses 1,000 cigars and contains 25 private lockers for the best clients' personal collections. Meanwhile, the Lanesborough's plush, wood-paneled Library Bar, home to an amazing portfolio of rare spirits known as the "Liquid History" collection, just added a new crown jewel. It's the world's oldest known bottle of cognac, distilled in 1770, the year Beethoven was born and Marie Antoinette married Louis XVI. The ancient elixir is priced at ?4,000, or about $6,000, per shot.

In addition to the Library Bar, presided over by Guiseppe Ruo, who will pair a fine cigar with the 1770 or other cognac of your choice, the Lanesborough features a luxe Garden Room designed specifically for those wishing to enjoy a Cuban or even pre-Castro smoke from the adjacent humidor.
