Tesla Tequila is Here, Cheers!

Tesla Tequila here and gone almost instantly

  • Musk’s liquor arrives two and a half years after April Fool’s joke

  • Might have coolest liquor bottle anywhere


What’s the right drink for when you’ve arrived home after a beta Full Self-Drive and you’ve settled down in your Short Shorts with a not-a-flamethrower to watch the latest Space X launch on your Starlink internet connection? We’ve got the perfect one right here: Tesla Tequila.

While it started as a Musk April Fool’s joke called Teslaquila back in 2018, accompanied with a photo of Musk “passed out” against a Model 3, and then faced some pushback from the Tequila industry since it didn’t seem to meet appellation guidelines, Tesla Tequila is finally here.

Or at least it was, because while it was on sale on the Tesla website starting late yesterday for US $250 per 750 mL bottle, it looks like it’s already sold out. Or at least out of stock.

Though they were only shipping to the US, here’s what you would have gotten for your $250.

“An exclusive, premium 100% de agave tequila añejo aged in French oak barrels, featuring a dry fruit and light vanilla nose with a balanced cinnamon pepper finish,” says the website. Añejo is typically aged from one to three years in those oak barrels and this one’s said to have sat for 15 months.

Tequila is subject to naming restrictions, like Champagne, and it must be made from blue agave and be manufactured in one of five Mexican states. It’s made and bottled by Nosotros Tequila, a company that claims to make the “World’s Best-Tasting Tequila.”

You’re also getting that sweet, sweet lighting-bolt bottle, much cooler than the original Musk had suggested back in 2018. For plenty of Tesla fans, that bottle alone is probably worth the price of admission. And if they’d care to send us a drink to review, we’d certainly give it a try.
