What started as an April Fool's Day joke, Elon Musk has actually come through with the goods.
Tesla has officially launched their Tequila on its website, which comes with an extravagant bottle and a hefty price tag of US$250.
The odd venture for the car company came as a result of an April Fool's joke in 2018 in which he joked that the company had gone bankrupt.
In what would have been a shock to investors, Musk dramatically tweeted that he was 'passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by Teslaquila bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks' after the company had gone bankrupt.

This is not a forward-looking statement, because, obviously, what's the point?

Later on, Tesla went ahead and filed a trademark for 'Teslaquila', though their plans on the name were unknown until they released the liquor today.
According to the website, the tequila is 'an exclusive, small-batch premium 100% de agave tequila añejo made from sustainably sourced highland and lowland agaves'.
"Aged for 15 months in French oak barrels and into a hand-blown glass bottle, Tesla Tequila features a dry fruit and light vanilla nose with a balanced cinnamon pepper finish. Best enjoyed as a sipping tequila," the description continued.
Orders are limited to two bottles, and only people in some states in the US can receive them due to 'industry regulations.'
Tesla appears to have partnered with Nosotros to produce the tequilla and Speakeasy Co, an alcohol branding and distributing company, to distribute the product.
Even if you don't like tequila, the bottle alone would be a pretty impressive item to add to your collection, although the rest of the liquor would look a little tame by comparison.
It's designed with a Harry Potter-esque lightning bolt and even has a stand because, well, it's not like it would be able to stand on its own. While the price tag might put some people off, there's no denying it will be one of those highly sought after products.
