Ryan Reynolds Buys Gin Company He Calls ‘The Best Damn Gin On The Planet’
Celebrities love to own or be the face of liquor companies, and who could blame them. Drake has Virginia Black Whiskey, Diddy has Ciroc, Connor McGregor has Notorious Irish Whiskey, Channing Tatum has Born and Bred Vodka, Justin Timberlake has Sauza 901 Tequila, Matthew McConaughey has Wild Turkey Bourbon, Dan Akroyd has Crystal Head Vodka, Kenny Chesney has Blue Chair Bay Rum, and George Clooney had Casamigos Tequila before selling the company to Diageo for $1 billion. The latest celebrity to have his own alcohol company is Ryan Reynolds.
The Deadpool star acquired Aviation Gin this week. “If you think all gin tastes are the same, you’d be mistaken. Aviation is in a completely different league and I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of the company,” Reynolds said after taking ownership of Aviation Gin. Reynolds allegedly became interested in purchasing the company after tasting the spirit. “About a year ago, I tried Aviation for the first time,” Reynolds said. “Since that day, I’ve spent my time finding some way to infiltrate the company.” Reynolds boasts that Aviation is “the best damn gin on the planet.” The Hollywood star added that the gin is “smooth” and has a “botanical” taste.
