Ten Most Expensive Bottles of Tequila From Around The World

Tequilas are often the favoured drinks at parties; this may be because the quick shots can get you an instant buzz unlike any other drink out there. This is because even a relatively small portion of the drink comes with a high concentration of alcohol, about 40% on average, which is in itself the ceiling on what general drinks offer. But some of the shots may be as high as 60% concentrated, and a few of the most expensive Tequila might cost you a fortune.

It’s distilled from the Blue Agave flower found in and around the city of Santiago de Tequila, and as such, Mexicans have been using this for centuries past, but now the USA is the leading consumer of the drink. There are currently over 500 different brands of Tequila available in the market. This should give you a good enough idea about its demand. Some of them are quite expensive, but they can vary from anything from $10 to over $2000, ensuring that everyone, from broke college kids to elite superstars, has something to enjoy.

However, here’s a list of some of the most expensive Tequila available in the world.

Gran Patrón Platinum – $250

10. Gran Patrón Platinum – $250

This is widely hailed as one of the smoothest alcohols in the world, with a buttery finish and a hint of citrusy sharpness. It has all of its colour removed and is extremely clear and thrice-distilled. You can also find the heat of a dash of black pepper in it.

It is said to be retrieved and distilled from high up on the Mexican hills, from volcanic ashes, which is one contributing factor to its sugar content. The bottle looks classy in crystal with the name etched over it. It comes in a hand-made, smooth, curly maple wood box. It’s priced at $250.

Don Julio Real – $350

9. Don Julio Real – $350

This Tequila is cased in a classy bottle with a golden tint flanked by two silvery leaves and a pine-cone etched silver bottle stopper. It exudes pure royalty and is one of the first ultra-premium tequilas to have ever been made.

Before being packaged, it is aged for three whole years in an Oak barrel and gives off a sweet and citrusy taste along with a gentle golden hue. The ageing process also contributes to the flavour of warm chocolate and caramel-like finish. Initially, it was quite a rare beauty found only in Guadalajara. But since then, mass production has taken over, and it can be found in markets. It’s priced at $350.

Casa Herradura Seleccion Suprema – $360

8. Casa Herradura Seleccion Suprema – $360

It costs $360 but is well worth it, considering it belongs to one of the oldest Tequila brands — Herradura, which started tequila production way back in 1870.

They were also the first to introduce the reposed — a rested tequila. Ageing it for over four years in a barrel leads to a strong aroma and a smooth texture, which gives off hints of rose, Agave, and vanilla. The creamy texture works really well on the palate as well.

Tres-Quatro-Cinco – $390

7. Tres-Quatro-Cinco – $390

Tres-Quatro-Cinco-Most Expensive TequilaPriced at $390, in accordance with the name, this is a mixture of tequilas aged at 3, 4 and 5 years. It is developed by the famous Fonseca family from Jalisco, which is the fourth generation of tequila distillers in Mexico.

This is made 100% from the Weber Blue Agave plant. And even its bottle is completely pure hand-crafted crystal. The bottles themselves have a celebrity status, with only 1000 bottles made, each of them signed by the hands of the Artist who made them, Alonso Gonzales Jr.

Rey Sol Anejo – $400

6. Rey Sol Anejo – $400

At $400, this one is a little bit of sugar and spice, coming to a nice confluence of the smooth texture of vanilla and the syrupy sweetness of caramel against the bite of spices with a savoury finish.

With over a 5-year ageing period, this one has so many layers of overlaying textures that every sip offers a new and unique experience. The bottle is a piece of art with a stoppered cork over an oval bottle made by the Artist Sergio Bustamante.

Clase Azul Extra Anejo (Ultra) – $1700

5. Clase Azul Extra Anejo (Ultra) – $1700

This one comes in at a price of $1700, which is no surprise considering its extremely limited production — only 100 bottles a year. The bottle itself looks hellish, and that is only an inkling as to what you can expect from this exquisite drink, aged for over five years in oak barrels.

The bottle is manufactured from pure Platinum and silver and is embedded with 24-karat gold. It comprises 100% Tequiliana Weber Blue Agave.

1800 Coleccion – $1800

4. 1800 Coleccion – $1800

This bottle, priced at $1800, is a true collector’s piece and is the child of true patience and dedication. Its texture is produced due to the combination of several different blue agave vintages, and every stage in its preparation, right from the planting of Agave to the packaging, is handled with care and precision.

It’s distilled twice in the finest French oak barrels, producing its unique flavour. The bottle is designed from Belgian Crustal and encased in suede and leather.

Barrique de Ponciano Porfidio – $2000

The Del Porto bottle is hand carved from the finest crystal and is a masterpiece. During its resting period, it is periodically tasted and tried in order to ensure that it has reached just the right level of smoothness, and sometimes it may be left to age for 11 years!
