While people might steal art, cars, or a whole lot of Bitcoin, one thief is on the run after allegedly stealing a very expensive bottle of vodka.
A bottle of Russo-Baltique vodka claimed to be worth $1.3 million was taken in the early hours of Tuesday morning from Café 33, a bar located in Copenhagen, Denmark, according to TV2 Lorry.
Released by Latvian luxury armored vehicle maker Dartz, the vodka is the only one of its kind, and appeared in an episode of House of Cards.
The bottle is constructed from three kilograms of gold and three kilograms of silver, and has a leather strap from a 1912 Monte Carlo rally car.
“I have borrowed it from Russia from something called the Dartz Factory, which makes the world’s most expensive cars and vodka. It has been in my collection for half a year, but not anymore,” the bar’s owner, Brian Ingberg, explained to TV2 as per a translation by The Local.
“I am obviously very upset. It was the icing on the cake in my collection. Of the 1,200 bottles I have, this was a very special bottle to have there.”
CCTV footage shows the alleged break-in, and the bar released photos of the masked person on its Facebook page.
Ingberg believes they had a key to the venue, or at least a copy of the key, which allowed them inside and break the door to the bar’s vodka collection.
“They then left with only one bottle, even though there are 1,200 bottles they could have taken,” he said. Copenhagen Police are currently investigating the theft.
