We’re not going to lie, the continuing lockdowns have got us thinking about alcohol a lot more than would normally be the case (so, around 95% of the day as opposed to just 90%) and, though we seldom stray from our craft beer proclivity, there is a spirit, namely gin, that we’ve also got a mighty big soft spot for. If you’ve even got the slightest interest in gin, you’d have to be living under a rock not to have seen the Ryan Reynolds backed, Aviation Gin, on your radar and we can safely say it is one of the tastiest gins we’ve had the pleasure of imbibing here at Coolector HQ.
There’s another reason that Aviation Gin have found themselves on our radar once again. That being the fact that they’ve just launched a limited edition Wrexham F.C bottle that is a celebration of Ryan Reynolds purchasing of the Welsh football club alongside It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star, Rob McElhenney.
Limited Edition Release
Released as a celebration of the eagerly anticipated takeover of the Welsh National League club, Wrexham, by Aviation owner Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, this top notch collab is definitely right up our football and alcohol loving street here at The Coolector. The limited-edition bottle will be available for fans to order from the official Wrexham AFC webshop.
Aviation Gin is an American style gin which is distilled in Portland, Oregon and each batch is crafted with a blend of botanicals, with subtle juniper notes. This provides a smooth balanced flavour profile that any gin aficionado is sure. The brand is now available in over 40 countries with further plans for international expansion on the horizon so you’ll have no problems getting your hands on a bottle or two of Aviation Gin.
Commenting on the launch of the exclusive Wrexham F.C release, Reynolds said “It’s no secret that I love Aviation American Gin. I truly believe it is the best gin on the planet. Rob and I are ecstatic to have won the approval of the Wrexham fans and the League and this bottle18 is for them. It’s a small first step on what will hopefully be a legendary underdog story.” As football fans here at Coolector HQ, we’ll definitely be making Wrexham our second team now that two of our favourite actors are involved in the running of the club.
Aviation Gin, owned by actor and producer Ryan Reynolds, is the world’s highest rated gin (with an unprecedented 97 points, Wine Enthusiast) and has helped establish a new style of American gin – softer and smoother, with juniper in the background and citrus and floral notes in the front – resulting in more balanced cocktails.
Created by a unique bartender and distiller partnership, Aviation is crafted in small batches in Portland, Oregon, and for anyone with a love of wonderfully well crafted spirits, it’s sure to tick all of the right boxes. We love the backstory of Aviation Gin and this brilliant new collab with Wrexham F.C so anyone on the hunt for some new spirits to try this spring, start with this one.
