Think Twice Before You Let Celebrities in your Liquor Cabinet
When we're talking about celebrities invading your liquor cabinet, we're not talking about letting Lindsay Lohan lick your Laphraoig, or Hasslehoff hog your Hennessy. We're talking about celebrity-sponsored, -endorsed, or -created liquors, spirits, etc. For every Billy Dee Williams (who used to pimp the magical Colt 45) there's a Danny DeVito Limoncello (no joke). Jason Wilson lets you know which ones to try and which ones to fear at the Washington Post.
In the past, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre have proven to be relatively credible arbiters of spirits. After all, they could have name-dropped any old gin in the 1994 hit "Gin and Juice," but they chose to call for Tanqueray (rhyming it, in fact, into cultural consciousness). It remains an excellent choice for nearly every gin cocktail.
Most other celebrities, however, I would not take drinking advice from.

Thank you so much for mentioning the Danny DeVito Premium Limoncello from Harbrew Imports, LTD. The photo you posted requires a credit. The photographer is Matt Peyton and this photo was taken November, 2007 at the Broadway Bar at the flagship Marriott Marquis Hotel on Times Square in Manhattan where Danny appeared before the executives, chefs, waitstaff, bartenders to demo this fabulous beverage.

Loved the article! I had heard that there was a Danny DiVito Lemoncello but couldn't find it. I did however find it and had it shipped to my house from www.fullliquor.com ! My girlfriends and I really enjoyed it, especially ice cold! We are now going to re-order on the website and try another! :)
