The actors started the production of bourbon.
Four years ago, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley made their last screen appearance as the Vampire Brothers in The Vampire Diaries, but they haven’t stopped working since.
Colleagues, who are linked by close friendship in life, united their entrepreneurial forces last year and opened a common business: they launched their own brand of alcohol. The actors set up the production of corn whiskey with the symbolic name Brother’s Bond, which is a direct reference to the vampire series.
In an interview with People, Ian and Paul talked about their joint business. “We’ve been working on this for 10 years. Our soul is in every bottle, ”Somerhalder said.
Wesley added: “A lot of people write their name on some products, but they don’t have their heart in them. In our case, each bottle is our creation. Brand name, logo, design, taste – this is all we have created, this is all ours. This is for people to have a drink, talk or celebrate together. “
“Life is hard. She constantly kicks you in the teeth. No bourbon, ”Ian joked.
The actors discussed the idea of a joint business for a long time and at the same time they themselves often drank bourbon. “I’ve always loved bourbon. Our characters drank bourbon. Ian and I, when we got out somewhere, also always ordered bourbon. It’s just natural for us. So we became connoisseurs of this drink. When we decided to do something together, we knew it had to be bourbon, ”said Paul.
Speaking about the business with Wesley, Ian said, “It’s not even friendship. It’s like brotherhood or marriage. We have been in this topic for so long. “
