Have y’all been looking for something new to drink while still social distancing? Your favorite vampiric siblings have you covered. We have all the details, right here on CW News Weekly. Because you can’t spell “I can’t live without” without C-W.

Ian Somerhalder and Paul Welsey have been secretly busy these past few months. They have officially opened their bourbon company, “Brother’s Bond Bourbon.” But, Somerhalder couldn’t go the entire length without giving us a few teases that something was coming. He shared on his social media saying,

“I cannot wait to proudly turn this bottle around to show you our label. Our brand. Our bourbon. Our passion. Our baby… @paulwesley and I have worked so hard, for so long with our team to bring this beautiful golden liquid to you…”

And the wait is finally over! Though Somerhalder, Welsey, and the rest of the team were definitely not prepared for how much love their newest project would get. 

When the site finally launched to the public, the masses swarmed! They swarmed so much, the site crashed! Rest assured, Somerhalder and the gang are getting things up and running. Saying,

“Thank you from me @paulwesley The love for our very own Brother’s Bond Bourbon today was incredible. So much so that our website crashed. There were hundreds of thousands of you trying to check it out and it couldn’t handle you… We will fix this! We can handle you. All of you and more.”

Now that just proves how much love there is for these two immortal brothers, as vampires and bourbon creators. 

What is interesting about our favorite Salvatores, is how important their relationship on and off the screen is to both of these gentlemen. 

Even the name of their company “Brothers Bond” is a testament to that. In numerous interviews the brothers never allowed the conversation to focus on “the love interest” of either character. They always saw VD as a story of two brothers.

I know I will eagerly be awaiting the notification that the “Brother’s Bond” website is up, so I can order a few products. Is bourbon your go-to drink? If it is, let me know in the comments below, and if it’s not let me know on social media with the hashtag #CWNewsWeekly. Make sure you save some room in your liquor cabinet for “Brother’s Bond” bourbon and that you are back here every week for CW News Weekly. Because you can’t spell “I can’t live without” without C-W. Cheers brother!
