Celebrities, of course, tend to make money from whatever they’re known for, but once they make it in one business, they tend to try to go after others. One common side gig happens to be coming up with and promoting their own alcohol brand.
This can be a smart way for celebrities to cash in on their “brand.” Those who are known for their expensive taste have gotten into the wine business. Those who are known for their figures, have created brands that are low in calories. And those who are known for their crazy parties, use their alcohol brand as a way to get the party started.
Some celebrities are very serious about their alcohol brand, while others are more low-key. So it’s possible that you’ve tried a celebrity’s brand without knowing it. So which celebrities have gotten into the business? Here are 25 celebrities who have their own alcohol brands.
1. Bethenny Frankel — Skinnygirl Margaritas
Many reality stars hope to gain fame in order to hawk products to their fans. The Real Housewives of New York star was able to achieve this and so much more with Skinnygirl. She created the brand, which became so successful that she sold it in 2011 to the liquor conglomerate Beam Suntory.
Frankel is still very much involved with the brand after the $20 million sale. The brand itself has expanded past alcohol to Skinnygirl meals, snacks, and more. Her success is what every celebrity hopes for when it comes to making a strong and successful brand.
