Ryan Reynolds’ Aviation American Gin has launched a limited edition gin to celebrate Wrexham Association Football Club (AFC)’s new away kits.
Aviation American Gin Away Edition is the second limited release gin to come from the Deadpool actor’s partnership with Wrexham AFC, and features a green label in a similar shade to the club’s new away-game shirt. It also displays an AFC logo on its label and the neck of the bottle pays tribute to co-owner Rob McElhenney’s TV success, with ‘Always Sunny in…’ displayed on the collar.
“We were absolutely delighted to extend our partnership with our official gin partner, Aviation American Gin, and the new Away Edition bottles are a small part of what supporters can look forward to as the partnership develops this season,” said Wrexham AFC executive director Humphrey Ker.
Reynolds is a co-owner of Wrexham AFC along with McElhenney, whose favorite NFL team – the Philadelphia Eagles – also play in the bottle’s new shade of green.
“The new away shirt, pairing Rob’s love of Wrexham AFC and Philadelphia Eagles, looks great and we hope fans of legal drinking age will raise a glass to toast what we all hope will be a very exciting season on and off the pitch,” added Ker.
“When Wrexham told us of their plans to have a Philly green inspired away shirt in honour of co-chairman Rob McElhenney, ourselves and Ryan thought it only right to bring the fans an ‘Away Edition’ of Wrexham Aviation Gin,” said Gareth Williams, brand director for Aviation Gin in Western Europe. “We look forward to seeing all fans enjoying the Away Edition, in their fantastic new Philly Green shirts!”
Both the Wrexham AFC away game shirts and the new bottles are available to buy beginning July 28. For more information, head over to the team store, where the 42% ABV gin can be purchased for £32 ($44 USD).
In February, Aviation Gin unveiled its first limited edition bottle to celebrate Reynolds and McElhenney’s takeover of Wrexham AFC.
