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.”
Er zijn een nieuwe outtakes verschenen van Ian en Paul’s bourbonmerk ‘Brother’s Bond’. Tot op heden is de drank alleen nog te koop voor inwoners van de VS, maar in een recent instagrambericht laat Ian weten dat ze bezig zijn om het wereldwijd beschikbaar te maken :)
