Dr. Dre's Aftermath Cognac Due in Stores This Month
Dr. Dre's new brand of cognac will begin shipping to stores later this month and in the beginning of October.
Dr. Dre announced the details of his new line Aftermath Cognac in August of 2008. The first alcoholic drink from Dr. Dre is a joint venture between Dr. Dre and Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records.
The production and distribution of Aftermath Cognac will be handled by Abecassis Cognac, which will also help introduce a new 80-proof flavored and unflavored sparkling vodka product.
The Aftermath Cognac and accompanying vodka were originally supposed to be released to coincide with Dr. Dre's highly anticipated album Detox, which still has no official release date.
Dr. Dre teased fans during his performance with Eminem and Jay-Z at Detroit's Comerica Park, after they began chanting "Detox" in unison, in an attempt to push the produced to release the delayed album.
“I'm coming,” was all Dr. Dre told the crowd.
Detox is the follow-up to Dr. Dre's 1999 album 2001.
