Ryan Reynolds is adding something new to his resume: Owner of a small-batch gin company.
The actor announced via Instagram on Wednesday that he is the new owner of Portland-based Aviation American Gin.
“Aviation is the best tasting gin in the world. Once I tried it, I knew I wanted to get involved with the company in a big way,” Reynolds said in a statement. “If you think all gin tastes 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.”
In true Reynolds fashion, the actor posted a photo of himself to spread the news.
“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, Reynolds tells Forbes, revealing he prefers to drink his gin on the rocks.
According to a statement from Aviation, the 41-year-old Vancouver native will “play an active role in the day-to-day business and oversee creative direction as part of his mission to introduce the world to the great taste of Aviation.”
Reynolds joins the club of celebs who own their own alcohol brands, including George Clooney, Diddy, Danny DeVito, Justin Timberlake, and Drew Barrymore.
