U2 Frontman Bono Invests in $58 Million Irish Whiskey Distillery

U2’s lead singer Bono is putting his microphone down and opening his checkbook to invest in a $58 million Irish Whiskey Distillery.
The Cassidy family were the first owners of the 200-year-old mill and began distilling whiskey in 1784. Irish businessman Paddy McKillen is revamping the distillery.

Bono is not alone when it comes to celebrities delving into the Irish Whiskey business. MMA fighter Conor McGregor announced his No Proper Twelve whiskey being made by Busmill’s recently. Even more, celebrities have gone into the business of liquor as of late. George Clooney’s tequila brand fetched a grand price while The Backstreet Boys are adventuring into the tequila business too.
