Nowadays, gin is often regarded as one stylish drink. Think James Bond and his Martini; who doesn’t feel slick when they ask for their drink to be shaken, not stirred?
We’ve known it for a while, but it seems that now celebrities are agreeing that gin is hot stuff. Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds has just announced that he is the newest owner of American gin brand, Aviation.
Could this be the slickest gin advertisement in all the land?

Even more remarkable than the thought of Reynolds suddenly being your boss, is that the star apparently pursued the investment after tasting Aviation Gin for the first time.
“Aviation is the best tasting gin in the world,” the actor is quoted as saying. “Once I tried it, I knew I wanted to get involved with the company in a big way.”
We’ve got to say, Aviation is a rather nice American gin. With a unique botanical mix that results in a smooth drinking flavour it’s close to a typical London Dry, with added notes of citrus and floral.
Created in the Portland, Oregon, Aviation is one of the quintessential American gins and it seems the gin brand is delighted that the actor will embody that spirit.
“Ryan has worked tirelessly to create some of the world’s most iconic media properties and will bring that drive and creativity to sharing Aviation with the world,” CEO Andrew T. Chrisomalis has shared.
If Twitter reactions are anything to go by, he’s already achieved that goal…
