Top 10 gin industry acquisitions

11th June, 2020 by Nicola Carruthers

Ryan Reynolds and Aviation Gin


One surprising move for the industry was actor Ryan Reynolds‘ purchase of the Aviation Gin brand in February 2018.

Oregon-made Aviation Gin was bought by Davos Brands in 2016. The brand first launched in 2006 as part of a collaboration between bartender Ryan Magarian and House Spirits Distillery.

Deadpool actor Reynolds has taken a front seat promoting the firm, and has recruited famous faces such as Hugh Jackman to boost its profile.

The brand is also targeting the UK market with a multi-million-pound investment and recently named Proof Drinks as its distributor.
