World`s most expensive tasting flight allows passengers to sip (or shoot) tequila in Gulfstream private jet for $500,000

Wealthy tequila aficionados who have grown tired of knocking back shots in a messy bar or sipping premium blends in the same old surroundings can take their love of the spirit to luxurious new heights.

For the eye-watering sum of $500,000 (£325,000) a group of up to 10 people can board what is being touted as the world’s most expensive tasting flight.

Offered by Tequila Avion, the half-a-million dollar travel experience allows guests to sample the company’s products on a Gulfstream private jet in the skies over Mexico.

A professional photographer will be on board to capture every moment as passengers sip tequila at 30,000ft during the one-of-a-kind experience.

In addition to the flight, guests are taken on a private tour of Tequila Avion’s distillery in the south-western state of Jalisco with company founder Ken Austin.
