The most expensive tequila in the world according to the Guinness Book Of World Records is $225,000 sold on July 20, 2006. The Pasion Azteca, white Gold and Platinum bottle of Tequila Ley .925 tequila of which only 33 bottles were produced shot into the number one position for the world’s most expensive alcoholic beverage. This was only the beginning as the Ley .925company was already to sell, La Ley del Diamante, a diamond encrusted, platinum bottle, which they expect to go for one million Euros or close to $1.5 million dollars U.S. at current exchange rates.
The tequila contained in these bottles is a blend of 10 year old and 5 year old tequilas from a so far secret province of Mexico. It is a good bet that the actual tequila will probably never be tasted since this would devalue the investment of the buyers significantly. Therefore, it is hard for anyone to say whether the liquor contained in these bottles is worth as much as an expensive house or in the case of the Diamante, a Rolls Royce and an extremely expensive house.
If this high ticket tequila is beyond your means, there are several less expensive varieties produced by this company which you may be able to afford. The next in order of descending cost is Ley .925 Premium 1, Project Meshico 33 in a platinum and yellow gold bottle for only $150,000 limited to 33 bottles.
This might still be too high for many tequila fanciers so a Project Silver and Gold .999 MX with a limited bottle run of 999 bottles, can be purchased for a mere $25,000. The bottle is made from pure 999 parts per thousand silver and a center plate made from yellow gold.
I’m still out of the “buy it now” category and the thoughtful people at Ley .925 Tequila made a 4 year old tequila for use lesser folks, or “peons plus”. This is the Grand reserve Passion Azteca 100% blue agave also in limited edition. This crystal bottle contains no platinum, no gold and no silver. However, it can be purchased for a somewhat more reasonable $3,500.
I checked my liquor store and this low end Ley .925 tequila product was not available at the time.
Two additional bottles are produced by Ley .925 that may one day show up in at high end liquor store. These are the Ley .925 Silver and Anejo limited editions. While these low end tequilas from the Ley .925 Company are still pricey, and still released in limited edition, they are more easily attainable and fit my budget better. The only problem is finding either of these two available in a local Liquor store.
If you do please let me know if it is worth the money and were to get them.
