This bottle of Mexican tequila goes for about $500 per bottle, and is produced by the Fonseca Family of Jalisco, Mexico. The spirit is made of 100% Weber Blue agave plant, and only 1000 bottles of it have ever been made. It is smooth in taste and unlike other expensive bottles the price comes from the product within the bottle not the bottle itself.

At $1,100 dollars per bottle Del Porto lives up to all the hype. Made with 7-10 year aged 100% pure hand selected blue agave plants, Del Porto is sweet and smooth.
