¡Ay Dios Mio! The Worlds Most Expensive Tequila Up For Auction?

Last month we mentioned the worlds most expensive whisky. Well this month is Tequila month at KYSU, we'll try to get some tequila based cocktails and reviews in this December. *Update* we'll try to get some tequila based cocktails and reviews ASAP.

According to The Luxist a special bottle of tequila is supposed to be auctioned off in London, with the hopes that it will go for a bid of $3.5 million.The previous price record for a bottle of tequila was $225,000 for a bottle also made by La Capilla.

The Tequila called "The Law of the Diamond" or in Spanish "La Ley Del Diamante", crafted by by the Tequilera Hacienda La Capilla, comes in a diamond encrusted bottle. There are supposedly more than 4,000 diamonds in the bottle and about 2 1/2 kilos of Platinum, making this one heavy bottle of tequila (in more ways than one),  weighing in at approximately 8 kilos.

Oh, and yes, it is a 100% agave tequila. No Mixtos here.

All I have to say is just wow! $3.5 could buy a lot of bottles of many other great tequilas but I guess that bottle must make a nice center piece. Just hope that your wife doesn't throw out the bottle when it's finished.
