Celebrities love launching liquor brands. George Clooney, Justin Timberlake, and Diddy have their own tequila (and mezcal) brands. In less than two months, the Backstreet Boys teased their own tequila, Ryan Reynolds bought a majority stake in Aviation Gin, and Bon Jovi and his son launched their own rosé.
On the hip hop front, joining artists like Diddy, Ludacris, and 50 Cent is the Wu-Tang Clan, which will be launching its own vodka next month.
The Spirits Business reported on Wednesday that Wu-Tang Clan Vodka will launch in Sydney, Australia, on April 18. The launch will coincide with the Wu-Tang Clan’s 25th anniverary. The group’s vodka follows last year’s launch of Wu-Tang Clan Premium Liqueurs, also available exclusively in Australia.
We can’t imagine why Wu-Tang won’t launch its alcohol brands here in the U.S., but we’re not asking, either. (We’ve heard the group prefers not to be challenged.)
