The pairing of musicians and liquor is not exactly uncommon, however it is often the case that the musicians are drinking the spirits, rather than having them named after them. The Duke Ellington Cognac is a 25-year-old XO blend from the French cognac house Meukow and aims to connect the drinker "to a different time and place," much as Ellington's music does. The cognac will retail for $150 per 750mL bottle, but it doesn't seem to be available in stores quite yet. Bottle Watch has some contact information if you want to know when it will be available.
