John Legend – LVE Wines
John JUST launch this collection in 2019 — which consists of a rosé, chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, red blend, and a sparkling rosé! Yummy!
Katie Maloney, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute – Witches of WeHo Wine
These Vanderpump faves took their brand from the TV screens to liquor store shelves! They launched in February 2019 with a Pino Grigio and debuted a rosé in June 2019.
Ryan Reynolds – Aviation Gin
The actor purchased Aviation in February 2018. This brand is a personal fave of many, because of how Ryan advertises. Most recently, he featured Fyre Festival blow-job guy Andy King. Too funny…
G-Eazy – Stillhouse
The rapper signed on as partner and co-creative creative director in 2017!
Jon Bon Jovi – Hampton Water
Jon launched the wine in 2018 and it made the list of Top Rosé of 2018 by Wine Spectator. You go, Bon Jovi!
Justin Timberlake – Sauza 901
The crooner first launched his tequila in 2009, but joined forces with Sauza in 2014 to make an even better product. Fun fact: the “901” in the name is a tribute to Memphis, TN’s area code. Justin grew up in those parts and fondly calls the Bluff City his home.
Conor McGregor – Proper No. 12 Whiskey
The MMA fighter’s whiskey hit the market in September 2018 and virtually sold out. A total slam dunk for the athlete.
Diddy – Ciroc Vodka
One would say Diddy and Ciroc go together like peanut butter and jelly! Which makes sense, since the vodka is made from grapes! Liquor giant Diageo partnered with the rap mogul in 2007, and it’s been successful ever since.
Dan Aykroyd – Crystal Head Vodka
Dan launched his award-winning vodka — and it’s iconic skull bottle — in 2008!
George Clooney – Casamigos Tequila
The ER actor and his business partner, Rande Gerber, sold Casamigos to Diageo in 2017, and made $1 BILLION!
Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt – Miraval Rosé
Brad and Angie purchased Château Miraval in France in 2008, and later got married there in 2014. Although it’s been tangled in their divorce battle, the winery is still functioning and will serve as an investment property for the former couple’s children.
David Beckham – Haig Club Whiskey
The former soccer stud joined forces with British entrepreneur Simon Fuller in 2014 and partnered with alcohol bigwig Diageo to create a classic taste in a fancy blue bottle.
Bethenny Frankel – Skinnygirl
The RHONY star founded her low-calorie beverage brand in 2011, only to sell it a few years later for a cool $100 million. Not too bad for a few years work! She’s since expanded the Skinnygirl empire far beyond beverages, to clothing and accessories.
Dave Matthews – Dreaming Tree Wines
Dave’s label, founded in 2011, is both eco-friendly AND affordable!
Drake – Virginia Black Whiskey
Drake launched his stylish Canadian whiskey brand in September 2016!
Matthew McConaughey – Wild Turkey Bourbon
In 2016, Matthew was named the brand’s creative director! He’s since launched his own bourbon, Wild Turkey Longbranch!
