Plenty of celebrities like to drink alcohol, but only a select few actually make it themselves.
Close friends and Vampire Diaries alums Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder — they played brothers on the show — turned their real-life friendship and into something exciting, which became Brother’s Bond Bourbon.
“The reality is we would finish shooting and we’d go to the bar or we’d go to our homes or whatever, but we’d always kick back and have a bourbon so we developed this love for bourbon,” Wesley told Entertainment Weekly in April 2021 about what inspired them to create the whiskey.
Wesley explained that it was the perfect reunion for him and Somerhalder after wrapping up their time on the CW drama series in 2017.
“So we fell in love with it. And when the show ended, we finally had some time and we really put this thing together. We’re just so proud of it,” he told EW at the time.
