AC/DC will launch their own brand of tequila later this summer.

Bevnet.com report that Perryscope Productions and Epic Rights – the licensing and merchandising companies representing the band – have teamed up with Mexican company Fabrica de Tequilas Finos to create Thunderstruck tequila.

It’s the latest addition to AC/DC’s foray into the drinks industry, after having previously released Rock Or Bust beer along with Hells Bells and Back In Black wine.

The tequila is expected to be released mid-2016 and will be available in Silver, Reposado and Anejo varieties.

AC/DC will continue their run of shows tonight (June 12) with Axl Rose on vocal duties in Denmark. He was brought in for the band’s live dates after Brian Johnson was forced to stop performing as a result of hearing issues.
