When we think of celebrities we don't usually think of where they are from unless they are from "our area". Often times we just think they are from Los Angeles. Walking Dead actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan for example is from Seattle but now that he is setting his roots in the Hudson Valley we have adopted him as our own and he isn't the only one.

Just down the road in Rhinebeck, NY there are 3 celebrities that have made New York their home and some of that started with a candy store. Jeffrey Dean Morgan, actress Hilarie Burton Morgan and actor Paul Rudd got together to buy a Samuel's Sweet Shop. Now 2 of those celebs have launched their next venture in the Hudson Valley.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, best known for his role as Negan on AMC's The Walking Dead and his wife Hilarie Burton Morgan, perhaps best known for her role as Peyton Sawyer on the television series One Tree Hill have decided to "make mischief" with MF Libations.

According to the Poughkeepsie Journal, the Morgan's teamed up with Poughkeepsie distillery The Vale Fox to create MF Libations. To get things started the group of entrepreneurs introduced a smoky rye whiskey and MF blackberry gin.

During the pandemic, The Vale Fox started making hand sanitizer. They reached out to the Mischief Farms in Rhinebeck, owned by Jeffrey and Hilarie, to see if there was a way to partner and get the sanitizer into the community. From that sincere beginning more ideas flowed into MF Libations. MF for Mischief Farms. Prices can be as much as $200 a bottle but also choices under $50. Shop HERE.

As for the "side job" that started it all for these celebs, Samuel's Sweet Shop? They just won Best Candy Stor in the Hudson Valley!
