Police in Copenhagen, Denmark, are investigating after what is thought to be the world’s most expensive bottle of vodka was stolen from a bar.

The bottle, valued at $1.3 million, had been displayed in the Copenhagen bar Cafe 33 with a collection of other vodkas and was on loan from the Latvia-based Dartz Motor Company, BBC News reports.

Police told the Associated Press they had been notified that the bottle was stolen Tuesday, although investigators say it is too early to tell whether the alleged thief broke into the bar or accessed the bar using a key.

Cafe 33 owner Brian Ingberg told BBC News that the gold and silver bottle with a cap covered in diamonds had been part of a collection of 1,200 vodka bottles on display at the bar.

Russian luxury car manufacturer Russo-Baltique reportedly created the million-dollar bottle of vodka to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the company’s factory.

Ingberg said the bottle had been featured in a House of Cards episode where the Russian president gifted the item to the President of the United States.

Dartz founder Leonard Yankelovich said he remained hopeful that the bottle would be returned to him.
