5 of the Most Expensive Tequila Bottles


September 29, 2023 at 8:23 AM PST

Luxury collectors often prominently showcase gorgeous items around their homes, representing timeless styles, nostalgic eras, and other interests. Whether it’s a classic designer piece, statement furniture, or museum-worthy oil paintings, these items, functional or not, usually reveal the collector’s appreciation for evocative artifacts that either reflect on their journey or symbolize subjects close to their hearts. For fine liquor aficionados, one such prized display is the bar area. It doesn’t necessarily matter if this is a simple credenza or a full bar room; here, eclectic glasses, unique decor, and some of the world’s finest liquors make up coveted exhibitions.

If fine tequila is the collector’s drink of choice, displayed bottles may exhibit complex flavors, while others look nearly as beautiful as they taste. The more intention or complexity behind the drink and its packaging, the more expensive it would be. We are talking about drinks steeped in barrels for as many as 15 years or bottles encrusted with diamonds expensive enough to buy several luxury homes. If you’re curious about the heights such dedication reaches, here are some of the most expensive tequila offerings around the world.

Ley 925 Diamante, AKA The Most Expensive Tequila in the World

Ley 925 Diamante, the most expensive Tequila in the World according to Guinness Book World Records.

Coming in as the top contender for the most expensive tequila in the world is Ley 925 Diamante. Holding the Guinness World Record for the most expensive tequila bottle, the Ley 925 Diamante is priced at a whopping $3.5 million dollars. The bottle is made of white gold and platinum and encrusted with over 4,100 diamonds, making it as breathtaking as any museum fine art installation. Inside, the tequila liquid is derived from 100% pure Blue Agave sourced from Jalisco, Mexico. It is then slow roasted, meticulously distilled, and aged for seven years in French Limousin oak barrels previously holding a vintage Port wine. This barrel-aging results in an ultra-smooth complex flavor with delicious hints of fruit, spices, and caramel blended with Tequila’s signature agave backdrop.

Get Similar: Tequila Ley 925 Extra Anejo. For 100 dollars only, you can get the same drink within the Ley Diamante without the whopping price tag that comes with the encrusted diamonds.

Significantly less than the Tequila Ley Ultra Premium, the Clase Azul 15th Anniversary Edition is the third most expensive bottle of tequila, with a not-so-small price of $30,000. Because only 15 bottles of this exclusive tequila were produced, this rare tequila is pricey because of its scarcity. Two out of the 15 bottles are only available to be purchased in the $450,000 collection, meaning only 13 exist elsewhere for individual purchase. And, to top it off, the third most expensive bottle is hand-painted and housed inside a 24-carat gold box.

Get Similar: The Clase Azul Reposado Tequila is made by the same brand and has a beautifully sculptured bottle, minus the gold studs of the 15th-anniversary edition. “Smooth,” “flavorful,” and “decadent” are just a few of the adjectives consumers use to describe this.
