A Mexican distiller has produced what it hopes will become the world's most expensive tequila in a platinum and diamond-studded bottle.
Hacienda La Capilla's 1.3-litre ceramic bottle has a 2.3-kilo layer of platinum and more than 4,000 diamonds totalling 328 carats.
Hacienda La Capilla already holds the Guinness record for the most expensive tequila with a bottle that sold for 225,000 dollars (£142,000) in 1996. But the company said they hoped their newest creation would fetch 3.5 million dollars (£2.2 million).
It is taking the bottle on a tour of European and Middle Eastern capitals in a bid to interest potential buyers.
