Precious stolen vodka bottle found - empty

The world's most expensive bottle of vodka, stolen from a bar in Copenhagen earlier this week, has been found.

But the owners won't be cracking open the champagne in celebration, because its contents are missing.

The gold and silver diamond-encrusted bottle, worth $1.8 million, was on loan to Café 33 from a wealthy Russian businessman. It contained a unique Russo Baltique vodka, and was uninsured.

Security camera footage showed two men wearing baseball caps carried out the theft.

The bottle, also adorned with leather from a 1912 Monte Carlo rally car, was the only item taken in the break-in.

"I had loaned [the bottle] from Russia from something called the Dartz Factory, which makes the world's most expensive cars and vodka. It has been part of my collection for six months, but not anymore," Café 33 owner Brian Ingberg told a local TV station.

"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."

The bottle was found at a building site.

Fortunately, Mr Ingberg says they still have some of the fancy vodka to refill the bottle with.
