It’s no secret that celebrities will endorse just about anything, from Rachael Ray’s Nutrish Dog Food to Maria Sharapova’s Sugarpova line of candies (including, of course, tennis gum balls). Anything for exposure, right? But over the past decade, there has also been a surge in the number of celebrities putting their names — and money — behind liquor brands.
While many of these companies offer... um... unique spirits (like the protein-infused Devotion Vodka, which for awhile boasted Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino as its spokesman), there are a few that are on the cusp of making it big, like Crystal Head Vodka, founded by actor Dan Aykroyd and Cabo Wabo Tequila, founded by rocker Sammy Hagar.
So check out our list of celebrity-owned and -endorsed spirits. You may be surprised which stars have gone from the big screen to the store shelf.
