The Vampire Diaries favourites Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley have clubbed together for a very special project.

After playing bloodsucking brothers Damon and Stefan Salvatore over eight seasons of the supernatural drama, they're swapping the scarlet for bourbon whiskey, with their new product now officially on the market.

It's called Brother's Bond, obviously.

Announcing the product's name on social media yesterday (March 27), Somerhalder wrote: "Twitterverse Meet Brother's Bond Bourbon. Please go to http://BrothersBondBourbon.com To sign up! We can't wait to share this with you!

"Please share this with friends and family! If you [are] legal drinking age in the United States or in your home country!".

The acting duo originally teased their in-development beverage back in September 2019, as Somerhalder told fans on Instagram: "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.

"WITH passion, hard work and an uncompromising quest/thirst for quality, we have arrived!
