Need an excuse for a road trip? If you’ve been meaning to make the trip down to Portland, now is the time because we have one more reason for you to go. What is that? Well you can now visit Ryan Reynolds’ gin distillery and see exactly how Aviation Gin is made.
In case you didn’t know Ryan Reynolds more than just an actor, he’s also the owner of Aviation American Gin. The brand describes itself as a “welcome departure from the traditional London Dry style” with “extreme mixability” appealing to a “much wider audience of food and cocktail enthusiasts.” What’s more it’s naturally gluten-free and of course distilled in small batches in Portland, Oregon.
