Though it was just launched a few days ago, Tesla's tequila is already out of stock, and bottles are reaching astronomical prices online

You don't see a car company launching a brand of spirits every day. But when the company in question is Tesla, it is bound to unleash passionate reactions. The concept promoted by Elon Musk started as an April Fool’s joke back in 2018 has become a reality, as the car brand has started selling its own tequila on its online store.

Each 750 ml bottle of tequila boasts 40 per cent of alcohol.

While the orders started right before the weekend, this Tesla beverage has already sold out. Despite the fact that that the online store placed a limit of two bottles sold to the same person in certain US states, the only place you can find it now is eBay. With the bottles set to ship in late 2020, resellers are already listing their treasures. Tesla Tequila is currently not available in Singapore.

Tesla fans will have to spend a minimum of US$500 and up to US$5000 to buy one of these collector's bottles shaped like a thunderbolt.

However would-be buyers be aware that the bottles will be empty, since alcohol sales are forbidden on the US auction website.
