World's Most Expensive Tequila: Diamond Sterling Costs $3.5 Million

A distillery in Mexico has unveiled a tequila called the “The Diamond Sterling” which is being touted as the world’s most expensive. Hacienda La Capilla has created the ceramic bottle with 1.3 litre capacity, is coated with about 5lbs platinum and encrusted with 4000 diamonds weighing 328 carats.

The globally renowned designer Fernando Altamirano, is anticipating to break his own last Guinness World Record made in 1996. The tequila is expected to fetch around $3.5 million. In 1996, US based buyer had added to his collections of fine wines and spirits by paying US $225, 00 for the world’s most expensive bottle of tequila. It has been reported that around 20 to 30 people took part to craft the bottle.

It is also stated that “tequila-appreciating hotspots” would be visited in places such as France, Spain, London etc and also Dubai. The Mexican distiller claims that the seven year old tequila is the most costly bottle in the world. Expensive tequila in platinum and diamond encrusted bottle would go under the hammer with the bidding starting at $3.5 million. It may sound crazy, but the bottle is the one that is expensive, and not the tequila in it.
