Wray and Nephew Vintage Rum

J. Wray and Nephew is a Jamaican rum manufacturer with modestly priced products. A 750ml bottle of Wray & Nephew Overproof can be purchased at the Park Avenue Liquor Shop for $25. Well within the average budget, right?

Not exactly. According to BBC News, 12 unmarked bottles dating back to the 1940s were discovered in the company's warehouse during a 2003 inventory. These bottles contained rum that, in some cases, included blends made in 1915. One bottle displayed at a 2006 rum festival in London drew a whopping $48,000 price tag, based solely on its rare pedigree.
