Elon Musk has created Tesla tequila, just in time for election


We all know Elon Musk is a little … how should we say… not right.  But billions of dollars and a whole lot of intellect is bound to make a person impatient and jumpy.

So word is in the spring he talked about making an April Fools joke by releasing a tequila in his company’s name.  I guess the idea kept sounding sweeter and sweeter because it happened.

The automaker now lists Tesla Tequila (a bit different from the original Teslaquila branding) on its website. The tequila — described as a “small-batch premium 100% de agave tequila añejo made from sustainably sourced highland and lowland agaves,” is housed in a handblown glass bottle shaped in the electric charge symbol. Oh, and it costs $250.

A tiktoker that I am obsessed with bought a bottle last night and I’m anxiously awaiting her review. Till then, we’ll have to speculate that it tastes over priced and a little nutty.
