The actor, writer and producer, Ryan Reynolds, has become the proud owner of a craft gin company, Aviation Gin. OK, well, he is PART owner of the American spirit company, but still. We’ve certainly bragged over smaller things in our Instagram bio, so let’s give him this one.


He announced his new side-hustle via his out-of-office e-mail sent from the new company. The statement was typical of the actor’s tongue-in-cheek manner: ‘Thank you for your email and interest in Aviation American Gin,’ it begins. ‘I’m away from my desk at the moment but will respond the moment they give me a desk.

‘About a year ago, I tried Aviation for the first time. Since that day, I’ve spent my time finding some way to infiltrate the company.’ Clearly proud of his wares, Reynolds described the Portland-based gin as the ‘best-tasting gin in the world.’

I own nothing in this photo. Except that gin company. @aviationgin
