Ryan Reynolds is now the proud owner of a gin company

Ryan Reynolds has said he has continued the “long and in no way disastrous marriage of showbiz and alcohol” by buying a gin company.

The Deadpool star has bought Aviation Gin, following in the footsteps of stars such as George Clooney, Jay-Z, David Beckham and Channing Tatum, who have all been owners of alcohol companies.

Last year Clooney sold Casamigos, the tequila company he founded with Cindy Crawford’s husband Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman, to UK drinks firm Diageo for a reported 1 billion US Dollars

Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, owns a stake in Armand de Brignac Champagne, while Beckham created single grain Scotch whisky Haig Club with music mogul Simon Fuller, and Tatum launched Born And Bred vodka last year.

Some of you might know about a project we've been working on called @bornandbred. It's been a labor of love and we're finally starting to get our American craft vodka out into the world. As part of our release, we partnered with @giftagram for the American Legends Gift Box for Father's Day. At Born and Bred, we believe that fathers are inherent storytellers. They take legends, lessons and myths and pass them down to their children. I learned this in my own childhood and I'm now fortunate enough to experience this wonder every day with my daughter. We set out to create a gift that symbolizes the spirit of the fatherly stories we love. I'm excited to share it with you now and let Born and Bred help dads everywhere tell their tale. There's a limited number of these bad boys available so download the Giftagram app with the link my bio to check out more. A very special thanks to @giftagram @shinola @theory11 @yielddesignco @machineeraco for being a part of this experiment. [link in bio] 📷: @colione @giftagram

A post shared by Channing Tatum (@channingtatum) on

Drake, Connor McGregor, The Pogues, Adam Levine and Van Halen’s Sammy Hagar are also among the stars to enter the liquor business.

Reynolds wrote on Twitter: “In the long and in no way disastrous marriage of showbiz and alcohol, so happy to announce I’m the proud owner of a gin company… @AviationGin.”

The company added: “We’re excited to announce our new boss, @vancityreynolds. Actor, producer, professional good-looking person.”

A quote from Reynolds on the company website says: “I’ve tried every gin on the planet and Aviation is, hands down, the best.

“Also, I don’t recommend trying every gin on the planet. Stick with this one.”
