In early November, Tesla unveiled the long-awaited Tesla Tequila. It's "an exclusive, premium 100% de agave tequila añejo aged in French oak barrels, featuring a dry fruit and light vanilla nose with a balanced cinnamon pepper finish."
The Tequila was sold in limited quantities, with a limit of two bottles per order, and only available in some US states. Nevertheless, this did not become an obstacle and absolutely all available stock was sold within a few hours from the start of sales. Many people did not even have time to order a bottle of the high-end spirit.
This has sparked discussions on whether Tesla Tequila would again be available to order. Today, in response to a question on Twitter, Elon Musk gave hope to all those who did not manage to order their own. According to the tweet, Tesla Tequila may become available for order as early as next month.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has teased us with Teslaquila since 2018. This name first appeared as part of an April Fool's joke. Musk tweeted that his company went bankrupt and he was found “passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by ‘Teslaquila’ bottles.”

This is not a forward-looking statement, because, obviously, what's the point?

In October 2018, Tesla officially filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to trademark 'Teslaquila.' The trademark had been for “distilled agave liquor” and “distilled blue agave liquor.” In fact, Tesla originally applied for this trademark in Jamaica back in April 2018 and asserted the U.S. priority date based on this foreign application. A few days later, Musk posted on Instagram a photo of a tequila bottle with the Teslaquila label pasted on it.
However, the application was rejected by the patent examiner due to the existence of another alcoholic drink with a name that was supposedly too close to 'Teslaquila.’ Spirit Tesla alcoholic drink belongs to the Serbian company Valjevsko.
On July 3, 2020, in response to a request for updates for 'Teslaquila,’ Musk replied: "Сoming soon."
Coming soon— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 4, 2020
