$150,000 for a Bottle of Tequila?
We don't have anything against spending top dollar for a bottle of booze...after all, what nobler purchase is there than the nectar of the gods? Sometimes you need to reach for that top shelf, and grin and bear it when the cashier asks for your money. Of course, there are some folks who are going a little crazy with the high price tags on their booze - as we've said before, liquor should be drunk, not collected.
However, If you're on the market for a high-end tipple, you might want to think about the Pasion Azteca from Ley .925, a limited edition Tequila that's going to have a $150,000 price tag on it. Yes, we said $150,000. We've been daydreaming all morning about what we would do if we got our hands on a bottle, and while we'd like to think we'd make a margarita in a pimp cup, we'd probably put it under lock and key and guard it like Scrooge McDuck.
What's so special about this stuff to make it worth the exorbitant price? Well, it's an ultra-premium, 100% blue agave tequila that's been aged for six years. It comes in a bottle made of platinum and gold, which has been decorated with unique art. It's being marketed as "the most unique & expensive bottle of Tequila in all history," according to the marketing material. All we have to say is that we don't know how you can be the "most unique," but it better be damned tasty at that price point. The tequila will be released on July 21, so if you want a bottle you'd better start selling organs or robbing banks ASAP.
