Nicolas Cage is reportedly launching his own alcohol brand. The 59-year-old actor has trademarked Nick Cage for a new bourbon and he’s currently focused on launching his booze brand.

“It’s become the ‘in thing’ in Hollywood to have your drink brand. It can be extremely lucrative. “Nic is a whisky and bourbon man who is branching into that. He has great taste, so this will be good stuff.”

In recent years, many big-name stars have launched their own drinks brands, including Jay-Z and Kendall Jenner, and Nicolas is now hoping to achieve similar success with his passion project.

It could be the road to a big payday for the sportsman as he follows in the footsteps of stars such as Ryan Reynolds and Kylie Minogue. Since 2014, he has been the face of Haig Club, owned by drinks giant Diageo, but is said to have decided not to renew his contract with the brand – which ends in the coming months.
