Mega-watt celebrities, From Elizabeth Banks to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Have Launched Their Own Drink Lines. Raise a Glass to These Brands

Revel Spirits

This is Us’ Justin Hartley is the star power behind ultra-premium and exceptionally smooth Revel Spirits, which shines a light on an agave-based spirit called Avila. Avila is made by hand from 100% pure Agave in the Morelos region of México by a group of families, using an intricate roasting and steaming process. There are currently three expressions: Blanco, which is unaged; Reposado, aged 12 months in American Whiskey barrels; and Añejo, aged 24 months in French oak. RevelSpirits.com

Teremana Tequila

Not only does this tequila rock, but it is owned by The Rock—as in Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. His take on the popular spirit is made using brick oven roasted 100% mature Blue Weber Agave from the Highlands of Jalisco that is aged in copper pot stills. Each of Teremana’s three current offerings—Blanco, Reposado Añejo—are sipping tequilas best enjoyed neat or on the rocks, with the Añejo and its notes of rich oak, vanilla, and roasted agave with a lightly sweet finish being especially satisfying.

Archer Roose

Elizabeth Banks serves as co-owner and chief creative officer for this brand, which is focused on creating artisan-quality wine at affordable price points through alternative sourcing and packaging. Named for a female rebel from the Gilded Age who lived by her own rules despite the times, Archer Roose has released five canned wines to date: Bubbly; Malbec; Sauvignon Blanc; Rosé; and Rodi Rosé, a limited-edition orange wine from Greece.

Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar has a portfolio of tequila with Guy Fieri, ready-to-drink cocktails, and this line of rums with fellow musician Rick Springfield. Each of the three current varietals—White, which has notes of coconut and banana; Red Head, with clear macadamia and cherry on the nose and palate; and Maui Kola Spiced, busting with Kola nut and hints of both vanilla and coffee—combine fine sugar cane from the Caribbean and are distilled three times by the Destilería Serrallés in Puerto Rico.

Crystal Head Vodka

Crystal Head Vodka, which hails from Canada, was created by comedy icon Dan Aykroyd and renowned artist John Alexander. There are now three expressions of the vodka: the traditional, which is made using corn, peaches, and cream; Aurora, which is wheat-based and has a bit more boldness and spice; and the newly launched Onyx, which bridges the gap between vodka and tequila by adding Blue Weber Agave into the vodka recipe. None of brand’s offerings contain additives, glycerol citrus oils, or sugars, allowing the natural taste to shine through. CrystalHeadVodka.com

Villa One Tequila

This ultra-premium tequila was founded by Nick Jonas and John Varvatos. The two friends and oft-Mexico visitors created the brand with master distiller Arturo Fuentes (aka the “Godfather of Tequila”).  Handcrafted in their own, small craft distillery using traditional techniques, they only use artesian well water and the finest, ethically sourced 100% Blue Weber Agave, matured five to seven years and sourced from both the highland and lowland regions of Jalisco, which gives it a distinct and rounded profile. Villa One is offered in three expressions: Silver, Reposado, and Añejo, each of which is 80-proof or 40 percent alcohol by volume. VillaOneTequila.com
