The event was attended by cognac lovers and industry experts, who witnessed the very first pour.

Ranjeeta Dutt McGroarty, the founder and director of Trinity Natural Gas, was the first to buy a shot of the rare drink at Hyde Kensington, breaking the Guinness World Record for the price in the process.

The brand has decanted the spirit into 67 French crystal bottles.

Rome de Bellegarde founder David Smeralda said: "We are so excited for Rome de Bellegarde to be available for the first time in over 120 years.

"Since its discovery in 2004 this incredible batch has been destined to be enjoyed by those that love and cherish truly pure cognac."

The previous record for the most expensive cognac sold was for 68,000 Hong Kong dollars (£7,072) at the Inter Continental Hong Kong, on 9 November 2016.
