Adult film star Ron Jeremy now making rum

Dan Aykroyd. Justin Timberlake. Maynard James Keenan. Celebrities with their own brands of alcohol are nothing new, but when we saw a certain adult film star’s mug splashed all over something sweet and wet we couldn’t help but get excited. Meet Ron de Jeremy, a 7-year-old Panamanian rum from the one and only Hedgehog that can, as the website suggests, be sipped naked or in “drinxxx” like the Roniriña or Ronicane. While the porn star tie-in is clearly the crux of its marketing campaign, the rum itself was left in the hands of Cuban rummaker Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez. Of course, we’re not sure Ron Jeremy should be attaching his name to a drink that hasn’t even graduated from grade school yet. C’mon, Ron, how about a rum that’s at least 18?
