About Tesla Tequila Añejo
Elon Musk hardly needs an introduction. The founder of SpaceX and CEO of Tesla, Inc is a superstar entrepreneur and currently the wealthiest person in the world. On April Fool’s Day of 2018, Musk teased “Teslaquila”, a premium spirit. In 2020, two years later, the joke became a reality and Musk announced a partnership with California-based Nosotros Tequila for the launch of Tesla Tequila. The initial run sold out within a scant few hours.
Tesla is añejo tequila that is produced at the Casa Maestri distillery ― home to several tequila, mezcal, vodka, and various other spirits brands. One of the most awarded tequila distilleries, Casa Maestri uses ripe blue weber agaves that come from various regions in Los Altos de Jalisco. More than 100 different tequilas are produced there using stone ovens and autoclaves.
The small-batch tequila is aged for 15 months in French oak casks and bottled at 80 proof. Fruity with light vanilla and spice notes, the premium tequila comes in a sleek, lightning-shaped bottle that is hand-blown and ties into Tesla’s electric design.

Although tequila has developed a bad reputation, there’s more to the spirit than just shots on a Saturday night.
This traditional Mexican drink origins in the state of Jalisco when according to a local legend, lightning struck an agave cactus before the Nahua tribe drank its warm nectar. Behold, tequila.
Legally, tequila has to be made of 51% of Blue agave around the Jalisco region in Mexico. There are different types of tequila according to age – from the youngest representatives, blanco, reposado, and añejo, to the oldest extra añejo.
