The 5 Most Expensive Tequilas in the World

Top 5 most expensive Tequilas are more affordable than you’d think (mostly).

Tequila is one of the most popular spirits in bars and clubs right now. While it doesn’t have the class that Whiskey or fine wines do, tequila has made itself a solid fan base in colleges and musicians. Jokingly said to be Spanish for “I don’t remember doing that”, tequila is one of the most popular strong liquors for shots. Today we’re covering the ones where you’ll be paying a premium for this liquid blackout in a bottle. Unlike other spirits we’ve covered, most of these can be bought as shots for semi-reasonable prices so if you see one you like, ask about it the next time you hit the bar!

#5 Don Julio Real $350

A bottle of Don Julio Real is mass produced with a faux silver leaf overlaid on the sides. It used to be only available down in Mexico, but fortunately for us, mass production hit it and it’s now available in most liquor stores for about $350 a bottle. It’s a premium Tequila, double distilled for a cleaner taste with a mellower burn. It’s aged for 3 to 5 years, then packaged for retail.
if you’re feeling adventurous, a shot can run you about $17 at a bar. I’ll personally say it’s worth every penny.

#4 Tres-Quatro-Cinco $390

Tres-Quatro-Cinco or “3,4,5” is produced by a single family in Jalisco, Mexico. It’s made from a secret family recipe that mixed a formula of three years aged, four years aged and five years aged tequilas which is where it gets the name from. Despite the relatively low price per bottle, it is a more exclusive spirit, with only 1,000 bottles produced a year. Each one is hand numbered by artist Alonso Gonzalez jr.
