Aviation Gin is based in Portland, Oregon, and is ‘an innovative American gin with a unique botanical mix that results in a much smoother, easier drinking flavor than typical London Dry gin’. It is the world’s highest rating gin according to Wine Enthusiast, with a score of 97 points.
Reynolds will play an active role in the day-to-day business and oversee creative direction for the brand.
"If you think all gin tastes the same, you'd be mistaken," said Reynolds."Aviation is in a completely different league and I couldn't be prouder to be a part of the company."
The ‘Deadpool’ star is the world’s 15th highest paid actor, according to Forbes. The exact percentage of Reynold’s ownership stake, along with the price of the transaction, has not been disclosed.
Aviation was formerly owned solely by Davos Brands, which also has Tyku Sake, Sombra Mezcal and Astral Tequila in its portfolio.
