Marianne Eaves, master distiller of Sweetens Cove, a premium Tennessee bourbon that's backed by Peyton Manning and Andy Roddick.

Goldfarb’s record evaluated 63 superstar brands — including Ryan Reynolds’ Aviation Gin and Snoop Dogg’s Indoggo Gin — on taste, star ability and shamelessness (Ron Jeremy’s “Ron de Jeremy Rum” positioned last). 

Goldfarb gave the bourbon a 9 out of 10 score in each flavor and star electrical power and a two in the shamelessness class. 

“As we go via this onslaught of superstar spirits, you will see a lot of cheapest common denominator offerings,” Goldfarb wrote. “Factory-sourced products and solutions bottled at meager proofs, normally with added sweeteners and flavorings to make the spirits even much more palatable to neophytes.
