*Dr. Dre is launching a new brand of cognac Aftermath Cognac, a joint venture between Dr. Dre and Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records. The drink will hit stores later this month.

The producer, who announced the details of his venture back in Aug. of 2008, has decided to finally launch his first alcoholic drink.

Despite Dre’s new venture, those waiting to hear his highly anticipated Detox album will have to wait a little longer.

Originally, the Aftermath Cognac and an accompanying sparking vodka the company is also producing, were originally supposed to be released to coincide with the long awaited album, which still has no official release date.
