Actress Mila Kunis has signed on to front bourbon brand Jim Beam’s first-ever global marketing campaign.

The “Black Swan” star jumped at the chance to represent the company internationally because she’s a big fan of the product.

She says, “I am thrilled to be the newest member of the Jim Beam family.”

The firm’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer Kevin George, adds, “Mila’s love of bourbon, her appreciation for the authenticity of our brand, her warm personality and her global relevance to our Make History campaign make her the perfect partner.

“Anyone would want to share a Jim Beam with Mila. We love that about her, and couldn’t be happier to have her join the Jim Beam family.”

Three TV commercials featuring Kunis will debut in the U.S. next month.
