$225k bottle of tequilla

An impossibly upmarket brand of tequila -- 100 percent blue Agave lovingly aged for six years and sold in a limited edition platinum bottle with fancy artwork on the label -- went on sale in Mexico on Thursday night for $225,000 a bottle.
Cheap

At that price, it'd better be a bottomless bottle! Yikes!

Maybe we can all go in on it together and then we can get an eye dropper and each of us get a tiny little squirt just so we know what a $225 k bottle of T-kill-ya tastes like!

For that much money.. that tiny squirt better make me see my ancestors!!!

That is as long as we can keep buckytom from hogging it all, we need to designate a "keeper of the bottle" or something like that. But I am curious tho as to what it would taste like. I have always wanderd what Crystal (However you spell it, I know they have a shi shi fru fru spelling for it.) Champange would taste like but not sure I would spend $500 to find out.

They were saying something about this on the news tonight. Apparently the reason it costs so much is beacause the bottle was made from platinum. The guy wanted to get into the World Records book.
