SAN CARLOS, California – This week, Tesla announced a new, small-batch, premium tequila priced at $250 a bottle.

However, don’t plan on getting your hands on a bottle soon, as the company says they’re sold out. What was once just an April Fool’s Day joke by company founder Elon Musk has now turned into a reality.

Yes, the same company that successfully mass-marketed and produced electric vehicles has dreamed up a tequila made from sustainably-sourced agave.

According to a post on the company’s website, the Tesla Tequila is an exclusive, small-batch, premium 100% de agave tequila añejo made from sustainably sourced highland and lowland agaves.

The tequila is aged for 15 months in French oak barrels and comes in a hand-blown glass bottle, which resembles a lightning bolt.

“Tesla Tequila features a dry fruit and light vanilla nose with a balanced cinnamon pepper finish,” the company wrote in its description. “Best enjoyed as a sipping tequila.”

If you were one of the lucky few to order the tequila, orders are expected to ship in late 2020.
