Finally you can drink your fave car brand :)
Not to be combined with driving and certainly not advocating to drink and drive but Tesla has released it's own tequila brand and well if there was a year to drink more alcohol it just might be 2020
A bottle will set you back $250
The liquor is listed at the tesla online store and comes in a lightning-shaped bottle and is produced by Nosotros Tequila, a spirits brand in Southern California.
Supplies of the product quickly sold out on Thursday, even as orders were limited to two bottles each and only made available to customers in certain US states.
The project has been in the making for years. Musk had previously joked that the product was going to be called "Teslaquila," and even had the company apply for a trademark on the name at one point.
In 2018, he also teased fans on Twitter with a photo of a purported prototype.
This is not the first time Tesla's raised eyebrows with its choice of merchandise. Earlier this year, the company took to selling mini red gym shorts on its website, in a playful hit back at investors who had "shorted" Tesla, or bet that its stock would drop. Each pair was priced at $69.420.
Musk also made headlines this week by revealing how close the automaker was from bankruptcy at one point. In response to a question on Twitter, he said that Tesla was only "about a month" away from collapse when it was working to ramp up production for its popular Model 3 sedan from mid-2017 to mid-2019. Manufacturing for that vehicle has been notoriously difficult, with Musk calling the process "production [and] logistics hell."
Those struggles aren't reflected in its stock price, however. Tesla shares have been on a tear this year, shooting up more than 420%.
Last month, the automaker also reported strong earnings, announcing record profit for the third quarter and an intention to maintain its goal to sell 500,000 cars this year.
esla CEO Elon Musk floated the idea of a Tesla-branded tequila in an apparent April Fools’ Day joke in 2018, tweeting, “Elon was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by ‘Teslaquilla’ bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks.”
But why let a good joke go to waste when lesser celebrities like George Clooney are cashing in on personal-branded tequila in real life?
It’s unclear if or when Tesla plans to replenish the stock. We’ve reached out to the company for more information and will update this post if we hear back.
In the meantime, online sellers are already listing empty bottles of the Tesla tequila for pre-order on eBay—at considerable price markups, of course. Maybe the lightning-bolt bottle design was the real appeal all along? We’ve given up trying to second guess these things.
