Distilled from the blue agave plant found mainly around the city of Santiago de Tequila, the popular drink with the same name is among the strongest in the world. Most bottles of tequila have an alcohol content of around 40% while some can be produced with up to 60% alcohol content. As a matter of fact, some types of tequila are distilled with a bit of water specifically to dilute the high alcohol content.
There are more than 500 brands of tequila on the market, and while the cheapest ones cost around $10, highest quality bottles can be worth $1,000 or more. We have therefore put together a list of the top 10 most expensive bottles of tequila in existence, to serve as some sort of guide should you ever find yourself in the financial capacity to actually afford one.
Just like Casa Herradura and Don Julio, Partida Elegante also goes for $350 as well. The bottles are not only handcrafted, but also numbered. They have a crystal top and a silver charm, the Partida Tequila spirit Bird, around the bottle’s neck. This tequila provides an aroma with brown rice, mints, and a touch of honey. It has a slightly peppery taste with a note of oak, spice, and honey.
