Movie star Dan Aykroyd is making the most of his new-found role as a beverage tycoon by adding to his line of tequila.

The BLUES BROTHERS star has secured the rights for the Petrone tequila brand in his native Canada and now he's releasing a new rum and even a tequila-laced coffee drink.

He says, "We have a rum called Pirate Rum coming out; we have a Cafe Exo, which is a tequila coffee drink which is going to give Kahlua a run for its money."

The enterprising funnyman and House of Blues founder has also invested in a Canadian winery.

He adds, "My entrepreneurial side is taking over a little bit and I've aligned myself with some really really smart people."
