Mexican distiller Hacienda La Capilla has lately shown a Tequila bottle called The Diamond Sterling, which could become the world’s most expensive tequila. The 1.3 liter platinum and diamond-studded bottle contains a brew of tequila that has aged for seven long years. The bottle, which is on a European and Middle Eastern tour currently, is crafted in ceramic and spots a 2.3 kg platinum layer, and is studded with over 4000 diamonds that comes to a total of 328 carats.
The bottle, designed by Fernando Altamirano, was seen during an interview with Reuters television in Mexico City. Altamirano hopes to set a new Guinness World Record with the The Diamond Sterling, which is valued at around $3.5 million. The company is the taking the bottle on a tour to various European and Middle Eastern capitals in a bid to interest potential buyers.
Hacienda La Capilla has already made the Guinness record for the most expensive tequila with a bottle that sold for US $225,000 in 1996. Alcohol connoisseurs should bare in mind that for less money they could probably buy the world’s largest bottle of wine, which holds over 1,850 litres.
