Tequila fans might be fond of an occasional tasting flight—but now one company is offering something a little different for high-flyers.
Not only does Mexico's Tequila Avión's one-off tasting experience cost $500,000, but it takes place on a Gulfstream jet.
Billed as the "world's most expensive tasting flight," the jet will fly up to 10 guests to-and-from Jalisco in Mexico to discover the secrets behind Avión's liquid gold taste.
The group will be hosted by Ken Austin, the founder of Tequila Avión, Alejandro Lopez, Avión's master distiller, and Josh Capon, chef at El Toro Blanco restaurant in New York.
Guests will get a private tour of the Avión distillery and concoct their own Anejo tequila by selecting and harvesting an agave from their own fields. They will also eat a dinner cooked by Capon at the Lopez family's private home and will stay at top Mexican beach resort, Las Alamandas, for two nights.
A professional photographer and private butler comes as part of the package and if that doesn't seal the deal, guests will receive a customized bottle of "never released tequila."
Ken Austin, founder of Tequila Avión, said that this one-of-a-kind experience embodied the brand's aim to "constantly challenge standards of quality and luxury."
For those keen on spending some of their life's savings, the experience can be purchased online through Tequila Avión's website.
