Celebrities Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley of “The Vampire Diaries” have come back into the limelight to announce a new boozy endeavor.

Somerhalder announced on Instagram that he and co-star Wesley are crafting their own bourbon and have worked tirelessly to make it happen. It’s certainly not the first time high-profile celebrities have expanded their portfolio into the spirits business, and it’s the second time TV co-stars have teamed up this year.

Somerhalder reached out to fans asking what characteristics they look for in the American spirit and have received a wide array of comments, mostly from fans claiming they’re recent converts to drinking bourbon.

Somerhalder said that part of his bourbon mission is to invest profits into sustainable agricultural practices to help slow down climate change.

He ended the post, “Love, Damon and Stefan,” giving fans hope that their brotherly love goes beyond the screen.

The real question is: Does bourbon made from vampires age?
