Got $1500? Only Five Shots Left of Ultra-Rare Cognac

Hawksworth cocktail bar is the only place in Canada where you can taste Louis XIII Rare Cask 42.6 - if, of course, you have the necessary $1500 for a shot. Prepare to have your mind blown - the cognac arrived in November and there are now only five shots left which means that 17 people have handed over the price of a month's rent downtown for an oz of the precious liquid (or maybe even more went for the 'thrifty' option of a half-oz for $800?) However, according to head bartender, Cooper Tardivel, for some high rollers, one shot was not enough: "There was a couple of gentleman who wanted to try the Rare Cask and compare it to the regular Louis XIII, so they ordered up two shots of each." The regular comes in at a snip for $155 an oz.
Eater wonders: does the 15% tip rule apply if the bar bill is over $3000?
