Aviation American Gin confirmed the news via its official Twitter account. "We're excited to announce our new boss, @vancityreynolds. Actor, producer, professional good-looking person," it stated.
Ryan's amity of this brand of berry-derived liquor started from the first sip and he had been since looking for a way to get involved in the company. He said in a statement, "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. I did this for one simple reason: It's the best damn gin on the planet. Period."
Besides making financial investment, Reynolds will play an important role as creative director in the day-to-day business. The world's 15th highest-paid actor in 2017 is keen to promote the product, which is produced at House Spirits Distillery in Oregon, to the world. To start his huge role, he has done photo shoot. In one photo, he wore a gray T-shirt which he teamed with undone brown suede jacket and blue jeans. He sat on a one-seated leather armchair, holding a glass filled with gin and lemon slices on his right hand, and Aviation gin bottle on his other hand.
This celebrity investment has been long in run since alcohol companies have found this as a brilliant way to boost their products. Thus, unsurprisingly, Ryan is not the one and the first celebrity who has bought share in alcohol company. Previously, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs and Diageo teamed up with Ciroc vodka, Drake signed up for Virginia Black Whiskey, Channing Tatum has invested in a vodka, and George Clooney owned Casamigos tequila, which was sold to Diageo for $700 million in June 2017.
