Elon Musk-owned electric car manufacturer Tesla has launched Tesla Tequila, an exclusive, premium 100% de agave tequila añejo aged in French oak barrels. Only available in select U.S. states, the 40% ABV spirit is priced at $250 with delivery set to begin late 2020. Those who managed to order a bottle of Tesla-branded spirit are lucky because the premium alcoholic beverage is already sold out despite orders being limited to two bottles.
Tesla’s tequila comes in a lightning-shaped bottle mounted on a futuristic stand which is etched with Tesla logo. The tequila is produced in collaboration with Nosotros Tequila, a small-batch agave spirits brand.
Tesla-branded tequila was initially mentioned in the CEO’s 2018 April Fool’s joke. The prank showcased an image depicting a passed-out Elon Musk who was allegedly discovered by Tesla employees surrounded by bottles of “Teslaquila.” After Tesla’s social media followers requested for a real-life version of the spirit, Musk even had the company apply for a trademark on the name.
