Virginia Black Whiskey
In a joint venture back in 2016, the Grammy-winning rapper and spirits producer Brent Hocking launched an aged Bourbon whiskey. The spirit was described by our taste testers as "much smoother and sweeter than your average bourbon." If that sounds enticing to you, the Canadian artist is now offering his fans a piece of the business. The partners recently announced that they are hoping to raise $30 million in investments with an IPO starting at the end of this fiscal quarter.

Notorious Irish Whiskey
Not only was the UFC star in high spirits following his loss to Floyd Mayweather at his debut boxing match, but McGregor also announced he's making a spirit. The 29-year-old took the stage at a post-fight press conference with a bottle of his Irish whiskey, which he says is coming soon. “I’m going to take over the Irish whiskey market—and this is delicious!” McGregor told reporters. “Keep an eye out for it.”

Backstage Southern Whiskey
Before he hits the stage, the country singer takes a ceremonial group whiskey shot with his band to kick off the show. It’s a longstanding tradition for Rucker (also the frontman for Hootie & the Blowfish, who penned a song titled “Whiskey and You”) to bring good luck for each show—and now he continues the ritual with his line of liquor. According to a PEOPLE staffer who got to taste test the drink—which is only available in select South Carolina locations for now—Backstage Whiskey is "definitely worth a try," she says. "Even if nothing will top drinking it with Rucker himself."

Born and Bred Vodka
The Magic Mike star says he dove into the liquor business after failing to find a "good American vodka." So he partnered up with Idaho's Grand Teton Distillery to launch the potato-based drink that has "a smooth taste to it, like a cool feeling in your mouth," he told Bon Appetit. "The after taste doesn’t burn."
