Teslaquila. From April Fools Joke To The Real Thing In Just 3 Days


Follow a April Fool’s tweet by Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, in which he announced bankruptcy while passed out surround by bottles of a fictional tequila brand called Teslaquila, the entrepreneur confirmed today that Teslaquila will become a reality as part of Tesla’s merchandise.

Musk even added another dash of humor, saying that there will be free Teslaquila shots in Tesla showrooms every 1st of April.

Based on Musk’s recently-shared Instagram image, Teslaquila bottles would contain 40% alcohol, which is standard for the beverage. The label also states that Teslaquila comes in a 750ml dose, which would provide a healthy number of Tequila shots for Tesla fans.

Teslaquila actually follows a tradition of Elon Musk-inspired beverage. Back in 2016, SpaceX released the SpaceX wine for the holiday season, which included a lighthearted message wishing “many happy returns.” Our Teslarati Space reporter, Eric Ralph, provided us with an image of this equally special alcoholic beverage.

We also see on the bottle the “100% Puro De Agave,” message. “For aficionados, the most important identifier on the label of a tequila bottle is ‘100% agave’ or ‘100% agave azul’ – cien por ciento de agave azul. This means it is made only from the blue agave plant, with only agave sugars used for fermentation, and was approved by a government inspector to ensure purity,” explains Ian Chadwick.
