Man buys $50K worth of cognac at downtown Houston Specs


We told you about the $22,000 bottles for sale at Specs. Well, one ABC13 viewer saw the story and showed up at Specs downtown to purchase 2 of the 4 bottles they had for sale.

"My favorite drink is Louis Tres, Louis the 13th,' said cognac connoisseur Ray Davis. "They came out with Black Pearl 8 or 9 years ago, so I started collecting the line back then. Then they came out with the rare Cask 43.8, and now with 42.6, I'm able to basically have a complete set."

The total bill with tax was just over $50,000 for the two bottles.

Davis says he plans on consuming one of the bottles and saving the other for his grandkids.
