Meet the maker
The Aviation Gin story starts in 2005, when Seattle bartender Ryan Magarian was introduced to "summer gin" by a friend from Portland, Oregon. This gin had been made as a one-off, with a less intense flavour of juniper, to give a softer, more easy-drinking style gin, perfect for enjoying in the summer heat.
Recognising the gin's potential for the classic, pre-Prohibition cocktails that he was so passionate about, Ryan headed off to Portland to meet the gin's distiller, Christian Krogstad. Together they founded Aviation Gin - an American gin based on the idea of creating a softer, smoother and less overtly juniper-dominated flavour profile.
Recently actor Ryan Reynolds has become involved, adding his inimitable sense of humour to Aviation's profile - as well as a little Hollywood glamour.
"I've tried every gin on the planet and Aviation is, hands down, the best. Also, I don't recommend trying every gin on the planet. Stick with this one." – Ryan Reynolds, Owner, Aviation American Gin
