2. Trump Vodka
While Trump Vodka promised to be success distilled in liquid form, the liquor company failed almost as quickly as it went on the market. The man who was in charge of creating the vodka is J. Patrick Kenny, who was a former employee of Seagram’s. After Kenny pitched the idea to Trump, he agreed to let him use his name in exchange for 50% of the profits made by selling the vodka. Kenny set off straight away, creating a corporation called Drinks America, and found a distillery in… the Netherlands.
