Ron Jeremy Wants You to Open Up and Swallow His Rum
Rum, as all alcohol, is meant for adults. Next year, however, infamous adult star Ron Jeremy is launching his "adult" rum, making him another Johnny-come-lately--or Ronny-come-lately, if you'll indulge--on the celebrity booze scene. Ron de Jeremy, which will be available next month for sale online, is a "well-balanced" 7-year-old Panamanian rum.
The "adult" vibe is evident at the very least in its wink-wink description: "The oak comes through robustly and satisfyingly [...] The finish is elegant and long."
While most celebs are known for their boozing of a different kind (see: Celebrity Rehab, Lindsay Lohan, and so on) famous names are now putting their monikers on bottles of liquor.
The Huffington Post has a round-up of the new faces on the top shelf, including shock rocker Marilyn Manson's absinthe, Mansinthe, Willie Nelson's Old Whiskey River Bourbon, Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Tequila, and a whole lotta vodka, from Donald Trump to Flava Flav's flavors, and Dan Ackroyd's Crystal Head.
Do celebs make better liquors? Or should they just stick to shilling for swill?
