Ian en Paul hebben een interview gehad met Forbes om hun Bourbonmerk ‘Brother’s Bond’ te promomten, deze verschint officieel op 1 mei.

According to Bacardi Limited’s annual trends report, 70 percent of North American consumers sought out sustainable or eco-friendly spirits brands at the end of 2020. While the upward trend of sustainable demand offers a positive shift in the market for now, all too often trends are just that—a fleeting moment. For Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, actors, directors, and activists, however, they intend to surpass sustainability with the debut of their bourbon, Brother’s Bond, by supporting regenerative agriculture.

“Building communities around farming and regenerative agriculture is the way to the future,” Somerhalder told Forbes. He explained that in the next decade there’s an opportunity for a great change in agricultural practices as the existing generation passes control to a younger (and by proxy, more progressive-thinking) generation. “We see that as a very powerful and positive thing,” he said. “The companies that are going to create the largest amount of stewardship are the companies with the triple bottom line: people, plant, profit.”

According to a 2020 journal published by MDPI, in comparison to the short-range concepts of sustainability, regenerative practices—including regenerative farming—reflect a holistic world view and aim for thriving living systems, where whole-system health and wellbeing increase continually. The journal furthers Somerhalder’s narrative and adds, “although the advancement of regenerative practices will require fundamental shifts supported by more awareness and education, theoretical and practical development, leadership, empowering communities, and integrating spirituality,” we should focus on regenerative sustainability because it addresses the “root causes of (un)sustainability.”

“Agriculture contributes more to climate change than all the cars on the road and all the planes in the sky, so that is where we make our stand,” Somerhalder emphasized.

The concept of Brother’s Bond originated during the early days of “The Vampire Diaries”—The CW hit series that aired from 2009 to 2017—where Wesley and Somerhalder first met and enacted the roles of the Salvatore brothers. Though Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) and Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) shared many drams of bourbon on set, they revealed that the brown liquid consumed during the episodes was actually iced tea—so by the end of the day, they were ready for the real deal. Wesley shared, “Not to sound cheesy, but we would bond over bourbon after shooting.”

After 11 years, eight seasons and 171 episodes, Wesley and Somerhalder nurtured a brotherhood offset as conversations over their daily drink spanned from climate change and philanthropy to creating their own bourbon. They said that when filming ended, it was time to combine these recurring topics into a brand that extended beyond the show.

“We’re aware that although [“The Vampire Diaries”] was popular, it’s still finite,” said Wesley. “We want Brother’s Bond to transcend past TV and past our bond to create a community.”

“This has been 10 years in the making,” Ian Somerhalder tells PEOPLE of the craft bourbon he created with Paul Wesley, Brother’s Bond

Though it’s been four years since Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley last shared the screen as brothers Damon and Stefan Salvatore on The CW drama The Vampire Diaries, the real-life best friends haven’t missed a beat while creating and developing their joint passion project: bourbon.

In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, the duo open about their latest venture, their friendship throughout the years, and whether or not there’s a possibility of reprising their Vampire Diaries roles in the future.

“This has been 10 years in the making,” Somerhalder, 42, says of their craft bourbon Brother’s Bond, which will be available in stores and online May 1. “Our soul is in this bottle.”

Ian Somerhalder has responded to the rumours of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ reboot and well, it’s negative. The actor who played the vampire Damon Salvatore in the fan-favorite series still has a lot of love for Vampire Diaries, but he’s learned that it’s best for the dead to stay dead.

On Sirius XM’s Radio Andy, host Andy Cohen brought up the possibility of reviving the beloved CW series, asking, “[There are] rumours circling online that it could come back for a ninth season, but that the decision is up to you and Nina [Dobrev]. Any truth to that?”

Ian shut down the idea of returning to his role as Damon, aka Nina Dobrev’s love interest. “I have not heard anything about a season nine,” he simply stated.

As fans will recall, they both ended the series having taken the cure for vampirism and were ready to embark on a life as newlyweds. Not to mention, Stefan (Paul Wesley) finally passed on to the afterlife.

For Ian, he said that it wouldn’t be the dramatic story fans got to know and love. “What would happen?” he questioned. “Damon would have like, grey hair and they’d have canes. Like, ‘Oh, I’ve got to feed the baby.'”

Ian also wondered why they would need to reboot the series after all this time, especially when it continues to be a success on streaming platforms like Netflix. He remarked, “Now, it’s still living. That’s what’s so amazing.”

Ian heeft een nieuwe fotoshoot gehad voor Nobleman Magazine.


It’s another hot and sunny day in Southern California, making October feel like the middle of summer. Driving through a labyrinth of backstreets in beautiful Encino, I’m on my way to meet a bonafide Hollywood star. Ian Somerhalder, 41, is a model, actor, director, producer, activist, and entrepreneur.

Most would immediately recognize Somerhalder’s handsome face from hit TV shows “Lost,” and “The Vampire Diaries.” When Ian’s starring turn in Netflix’s “V Wars” recently came to a premature halt, he didn’t throw a pity party; instead he turned to filmmaking (Kiss the Ground), activism (The Ian Somerhalder Foundation), and entrepreneurism (Brother’s Bond bourbon). Above all, Somerhalder is an environmentalist and family man. But let’s start at the beginning.

The property where we were to chat and have the photo shoot is perched behind gates on a serene cul de sac, a prestigious celebrity enclave minutes from Beverly Hills, Bel Air, and Brentwood. Every great meeting requires an equally impressive environment, and this palatial mansion did not disappoint with its architectural details fit for even the most discerning taste. Draped over a sprawling 1.35 acre lot with breathtaking panoramic views, the stunning Italian inspired estate boasts 7 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and 14,500 sq. feet. It’s a one-of- a-kind entertainer’s dream, a private paradise, whose exterior grounds include expansive terraces, an infinity pool, tennis court, waterfalls and immaculate landscaping. And if you’re looking, will only cost you a cool $17.5M.

Being so generous of spirit, my conversation with Ian actually lasted over an hour on set. In fact, throughout the whole day, the Nobleman team was blown away by Ian’s positivity, leadership and general “up” energy. Sometimes, when a shoot runs long, the talent can turn a bit surly. This day proved to be the opposite, with Ian running around pumping everybody up, keeping spirits high. No ego detected, just a big smile. A man with a plan, who wants to change the world, one dram of Bourbon at a time.

In fact, when researching Ian Somerhalder before the interview, his lack of ego and genuine personality comes up time and time again. As executive producer of Kiss the Ground, Ian enlisted Woody Harrelson to do the voiceover work, knowing Woodys’ fame would help get the message out, even though a few journalists mistakenly called the piece “Harrelson’s film.” Somerhalder could care less, as long as people watch. “I grew up super poor on the Bayou of Louisiana,“ Ian begins our conversation. “That forces a person to keep it real.”
