Some of the world’s biggest drinks companies have hankered after endorsements from a celebrity: Tequila, vodka, rum, even liqueurs.

Willis may be having a hard time of things lately after a reported deal to either give the Looper actor a 2.6% stake in Belvedere SA in return for a four-year contract, or hand over US$26.1million if shares fell below a certain price, was reneged after a stock decline.

Others have fared better though, with Sean “Diddy” Combs aka Puff Daddy’s Ciroc vodka achieving 65% growth in 2011, selling over a million cases for the first time.
