Elon Musk may not be known for making alcohol, but that hasn't stopped his Tesla CEO from entering the spirits industry. They recently released Tesla Tequila and it quickly sold out online - each bottle comes in an elegant Lightning Bolt-shaped bottle and costs $250 each.
Nosotros Tequila describes its product on its website as an exclusive small batch premium 100% de agave tequila aged for 15 months with a fruit-tinged nose and balanced cinnamon pepper finish - produced exclusively in California by Nosotros Tequila.
Musk first teased the idea for his Lightning Bolt-shaped bottle tequila on Twitter in 2018, which many took as an April Fools' Day joke. Yet he has made good on his promise and now has it on sale with a stand.
Tesla made their tequila available for purchase online Thursday and Friday, and was quickly sold out. Customers located in various US states were eligible to buy some, though no announcement has been made as to when a second shipment will arrive.
So far, reviews for the new tequila have been mixed, but many who have tasted it praise its excellent agave flavor and balanced cinnamon pepper fish notes. People who have tried it say that it stands up against other high-end brands despite its higher cost tag.
