Assamese Woman creates Guinness Record for buying most expensive shot of Cognac

Ranjeeta Dutt McGroarty, an Assamese origin woman from Guwahati, has created a new Guinness World Record after she bought one single shot of cognac for a whopping £10,014 (which is approximately over Rs 9.20 lakhs)!

Yes, a 40ml serve of Rome De Bellegarde Cognac that was sold for £10,014 has set a new world record!

The 40ml serving of the rare and super-rich alcohol was sold at Hyde Kensington Bar on Wednesday night, where Ranjeeta Dutt McGroarty, founder and director of Trinity Natural Gas had the pleasure of tasting the drink.

“Ranjeeta is a graduate from Handique Girls College in Guwahati, who pursued her degree in Mass Communication from MS University in Baroda after which she attended London School of Economics, city University London (Reuters Scholarship) and Cambridge UK,” said Rituraj Dutt, (Ranjeeta’s brother) exclusively to G Plus.


The drink was not only the most expensive single shot of cognac, but is also one of the oldest cognac to be discovered in the world.

“The pricey plonk was discovered in the cellars of cognac house Jean Fillioux by fifth generation cellar master Pascal Fillioux. It is believed to be the very first blend created by Jean Fillioux in 1894,” as reported by Metro UK.

Cognac enthusiasts and industry experts were invited to the event to witness the very first pour, alongside an official adjudicator from the Guinness World Records.

Ranjeeta Dutt McGroarty, the founder and director of Trinity Natural Gas, was the first to experience the rare tipple, breaking the Guinness World Record for the price in the process.
