As if you needed another reason so get tipsy, these companies combined everyone's two favorite things: celebrities and alcohol. Mix those ingredients together, and boom! Instantly great sales numbers. No wonder new celebrity alcohol brands are popping up at your local watering hole every happy hour. If you're ready to stop drinking the generic brands and find out how the other half drinks, just chose your next libation from this list of celebrities who have their own alcohol brands.
Alcohol companies love hooking up with celebrities. A big star can instantly define a brand, not to mention immediately cause fans to rush out and buy a bottle. Seriously, aren't you intrigued by Justin Timberlake's 901 Sauza tequila? How about George Clooney's Casamigos tequila? With all the money those two have, they're bound to have some fancy tastes.
Combining celebrities with alcohol brands is definitely a recipe for success. What celeb wouldn't want to endorse an alcohol brand? Just think: free vodka, tequila, or rum for life! Plus you get paid to drink it! Or, if you’re like Ludacris or Drew Barrymore, it’s not just about endorsing a brand, it’s about creating your own. Ludacris was actually involved in the blending of Conjure Cognac, and Drew Barrymore’s Pinot Grigio was inspired from her travels all over the world.
Cheers to these celebrity liquor brands!

As Justin Timberlake proclaims on the 901 Tequila website, "I have spent the last several years creating a premium brand that captures the passion I have for tequila." The collaboration with Casa Sauza resulted in a tequila that is smooth and triple distilled. According to the site: "Justin Timberlake drinks his Sauza® 901® straight. Why? Because a straight glass of Sauza® 901®premium tequila allows the unique flavor of the 100% blue weber agave to stand alone." Perfect for pairing with your suit and tie.
