World's most expensive tequila

Posted on 2:28 AM by Sameer Shah

For this price, you'd think they would have included a worm.

A Mexican distiller has produced what it hopes will become the world's most expensive tequila in a platinum and diamond-studded bottle.

Hacienda La Capilla's 'The Diamond Sterling' comes in a 1.3-litre ceramic bottle coated in more than 5lbs of platinum.

But that's not all: the bottle is encrusted in more than 4,000 diamonds, totalling 328 carats.

The bottle is crafted by renowned designer Fernando Altamirano and is valued at around $3.5million.

The liquor inside is not half bad either: a rich seven-year aged tequila straight from the Mexican state of Jalisco.

Hacienda La Capilla already holds the Guinness record for the most expensive tequila with a bottle that sold for $225,000 (£142,000) in 1996.

But the company said they hoped their newest creation would fetch $3.5 million (£2.2 million).

Its latest creation will go on a world tour of tequila-appreciating hotspots, including London, Paris, Switzerland, Spain, Monaco and Dubai.

The diamond-encrusted bottle will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
