Ryan Reynolds’ Aviation Gin Company Is Tipping Bartenders 30% Of Their Profits While You Learn How To Make a Martini At Home

Do you miss going out to your local bar and seeing your favorite bartender? Chances are, they’re suffering financially right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most drink slingers are temporarily out of work—and without their regular income—because many bars have closed to comply with social distancing protocol.

Enter actor Ryan Reynolds, who also has a company called Aviator Gin. The Deadpool star announced recently that Aviator Gin will be donating 30 percent of online proceeds to the United States Bartender’s Guild through May 1.

Reynolds made the announcement on Twitter, saying “Until May 1st, for every bottle of Aviation ordered online, we’ll donate 30% of proceeds as a tip to your bartenders – who REALLY miss you btw.”

According to the Aviation Gin website, the company has already “started a tab,” donating $15,000 to the fund.

“We’re available at home – where we hope you are right now – but your bartenders miss you. So we’ve started a tab by donating $15K to the United States Bartender’s Guild and will be adding an additional 30% tip for every bottle delivered through May 1st,” the website says.

Earlier this month, Reynolds and his wife, actress Blake Lively announced that they were donating $1 million to non-profit efforts in Canada to help those affected by COVID-19. They split their donation between Feeding America and Food Banks Canada.

“Covid-19 has brutally impacted older adults and low income families,” Reynolds writes. “Blake & I are donating $1 million to be split between FEEDING AMERICA and FOOD BANKS CANADA. If you can give, these orgs need our help.”

So, order some Aviation Gin and be your own bartender for a while. Have a chat with yourself! Just don’t go become Jack Nicholson in The Shining, okay? We have enough to worry about.
