From Rod Stewart to Kylie Minogue, not forgetting The Rock and George Clooney, it seems like you’re nobody in the celebrity world without your very own brand of booze.  From wine to whisky, our shelves are groaning with celebrity-endorsed bottles. At one point it felt like  having a Tequila brand was the must-have accessory for pretty much anyone who’d ever appeared in a film.

It’s easy to be a bit sniffy about celeb brands but the ones that have stayed the course all have something in common, a high quality producer behind them and a celebrity who is actively involved in the promotional and often production process.

Here are some of the most notable celebrity drinks out there. If you want to know more, head to our special celebrity booze page.

Matured entirely in freshly charred bourbon casks, Wolfie’s is brimming with layers of creamy vanilla, sweet peat, zesty fruit, and silky, buttery oak.
