Tesla fans are waking up to the horrifying news this morning that the Tesla-branded tequila announced late Thursday is already an electric dream.
The $250 product, which was limited to two bottles per person, appears to have sold through its stock in a matter of hours. Visitors to the online shop where the electric carmaker was selling the tequila are now greeted with a large “out of stock” button.
According to the website, Tesla tequila is (was?) “an exclusive, small-batch premium 100% de agave tequila añejo made from sustainably sourced highland and lowland agaves.” A California-based spirits company called Nosotros Tequila produced the product.
Tesla 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.”
