Red Sox Celebrated World Series Win By Dumping $25,000 Bottle Of Champagne
BOSTON (CBS) – The Red Sox post-World Series clubhouse celebration included some pretty pricey champagne baths.
During the celebration, David Ortiz and others could be seen dumping a giant gold bottle of Armand de Brignac champagne, also known as “Ace of Spades,” on each other.
The Boston Globe says the bottle was a 15-liter size known as Nebuchadnezzar. The price of this rare champagne bottle can cost anywhere between $25,000 at retail to as much as $125,000 at a nightclub, according to past reports.
It’s unclear who purchased the bottle.
If the bottle looks familiar, it’s because the 2011 Boston Bruins purchased a larger version – the 30-liter Ace of Spades “Midas” champagne bottle during a post-Stanley Cup celebration at Foxwoods. That bottle cost over $100,000. It was one of only six in existence at the time.
