Like tequila?  Got $500,000 laying around?  Well dig this.

The “World’s Most Expensive Tasting Flight” can be yours for a cool half-million.

In truth, it seems to us that anyone willing to pony up $500,000 for a tequila “Tasting Flight” has already been hitting the sauce.  But who are we to judge?

Believe it or not, Tequila Avion, the fastest growing ultra-premium tequila, is offering tequila and spirits connoisseurs an opportunity to purchase a one-of-a-kind "World's Most Expensive Tasting Flight," a bespoke travel experience to the Avion distillery in Jalisco, Mexico.  Starting on Cinco De Mayo, a single trip will be available for purchase for half a million bucks.

So, what do you get for such a tidy sum?

Tequila Avion Founder, Ken Austin and Chef Josh Capon of El Toro Blanco in New York City will host a private tasting, tour of the distillery and intimate dinner at the home of Avion Master Distiller, Alejandro Lopez. Guests will leave Mexico with customized bottles of never-released tequila from Ken's personal tequila library and the opportunity to age their own private small batch Anejo.

"As an ultra-premium tequila brand, Avion aims to constantly challenge standards of quality and luxury," said Tequila Avion Founder, Ken Austin. "This exclusive travel package exemplifies our mission to create sought after products and once-in-a-lifetime experiences while celebrating the Avion liquid, which is at the core of everything we do."

The trip includes:

  • Travel to and from Jalisco, Mexico via a private Gulfstream jet for up to 10 guests;
  • Hosts will be Tequila Avion Founder, Ken Austin, Chef Josh Capon of El Toro Blanco in New Yorkand Alejandro Lopez, Avion Master Distiller;
  • A private butler, natch (we are unsure whether tipping is encouraged);
  • Security detail;
  • Professional photographer to document your special experience; and,
  • Accommodations for three days and two nights at one of Mexico's most luxurious hotels: Las Alamandas

Included “experiences”:

  • Private tour of the Avion Distillery and tequila tasting with Ken Austin and Alejandro Lopez;
  • Private dinner curated by Chef Josh Capon at the Lopez family's private home;
  • Guests will work with Ken and Alejandro to craft their own, unique Anejo varietal by selecting and harvesting an agave from the Avion agave fields and choosing their own barrel that will age their liquid for 2+ years; and,
  • Guests will travel home with a customized bottle of never-released tequila from Ken Austin's personal collection.

So there you go.  Pony up, kick back and get ready to tip the elbow.  If, on the other hand, you’d rather spend that $500k burning a hole in your pocket on something more meaningful, we’ve got kids in college…

Just sayin’.
