Today we’re excited to announce a new partnership with Aviation American Gin, owned by actor and producer, Ryan Reynolds. As the exclusive UK airline partner, Virgin Atlantic will take the pioneering spirit of Aviation Gin to new heights, by serving it in our Clubhouses and offering our customers the opportunity to sip the award-winning gin on board at 35,000 feet.
To announce the new partnership, Sir Richard Branson and Ryan Reynolds sat down together discuss what the collaboration means to both in a short video:
Speaking on the partnership, our founder Sir Richard Branson said: “Working with Ryan and his team on this partnership has been so exciting. Aviation Gin is a true icon born out of a spirit of innovation, so serving it on board Virgin Atlantic flights seemed like a natural combination.”
“I’ve been a huge fan of Sir Richard Branson and Virgin for years,” Ryan Reynolds said. “For Aviation to be chosen as the gin of choice for such an iconic and quintessentially British brand is a complete honor. We look forward to serving Virgin Atlantic guests for years to come and, on a personal note, Sir Richard has promised to teach me the difference between revenue and profit, so I am beyond excited.”
To celebrate the partnership, a selection of lucky passengers on board Virgin Atlantic flights on the 30th September will get a special mixology experience hosted by bartenders from some of the world’s best bars, from The Dead Rabbit in New York to Smugglers Cove in San Francisco.
We’ll also be bringing our partnership with Aviation Gin to this year’s London Cocktail Week. From October 3rd – 7th, we’ll be trading our cockpits for cocktails with unique activations at Spitalfields Market. Stop by for exclusive Aviation Gin cocktails from some of the world’s best bars, including Employees Only’s First Blush or Black Tail’s Terminal A.
We have 10 tickets(five pairs) to London Cocktail Week to give away and also 10 bottles of Aviation American Gin.
