£2.2m bottle of tequila unveiled

A Mexican distiller has produced what it hopes will be 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 record for the most expensive tequila with a bottle that sold for $225,000 (£142,000) in 1996.

The company said they hoped their newest creation would fetch $3.5m (£2.2m).
