The actor purchased Aviation in February 2018. This brand is a personal fave of many, because of how Ryan advertises. Most recently, he featured Fyre Festival blow-job guy Andy King. Too funny…

The crooner first launched his tequila in 2009, but joined forces with Sauza in 2014 to make an even better product. Fun fact: the “901” in the name is a tribute to Memphis, TN’s area code. Justin grew up in those parts and fondly calls the Bluff City his home.

Conor McGregor – Proper No. 12 Whiskey

The MMA fighter’s whiskey hit the market in September 2018 and virtually sold out. A total slam dunk for the athlete.

One would say Diddy and Ciroc go together like peanut butter and jelly! Which makes sense, since the vodka is made from grapes! Liquor giant Diageo partnered with the rap mogul in 2007, and it’s been successful ever since.

The RHONY star founded her low-calorie beverage brand in 2011, only to sell it a few years later for a cool $100 million. Not too bad for a few years work! She’s since expanded the Skinnygirl empire far beyond beverages, to clothing and accessories.
