The Salvatore brothers will forever remain hallmark characters in television series. The duo did not only cause catastrophe on screen, they were shattering hearts across the globe and making young — and okay maybe, mature — women light-headed from their charming faces and dashing mannerisms.
It is an absolute delight to find that away from their overly eventful life on the screen, the duo is close friends. They even co-run a liquor company!
In 2019, Ian took to social media to share the exciting news of the business partnership. He wrote:
"Can you imagine if the Salvatore brothers had their OWN bourbon? Well, it's coming! @paulwesley and I have been working our asses off with our incredible team to make this happen. You've given us so many wonderful years as these characters and we want to bring you something to enjoy that brings back some great memories."
The actors weren't just working hard to make the partnership a reality, they also made sure that profits from the company will contribute to a genuine cause.
Ian revealed that one of the company's goals was to help in the fight against climate change:
"Part of our company mission and ethos is to invest profits into helping our world through regenerative agriculture and farming practices. It's the surest and quickest way to slow climate change by sequestering carbon and producing oxygen."
How amazing is that!? Ian and Paul have again proven themselves to be the all-around mesmerizing men we've always thought them to be!
