On Tuesday, Ryan Reynolds announced on Twitter that his Aviation Gin brand will be donating 30 percent of proceeds from online sales until May 1 to the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG). Bottles must be purchased for delivery from one of Aviation Gin’s national partners in the campaign, which include ReserveBar, Drizly, Wine.com, TotalWine, MiniBar, and Caskers.
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. Visit https://t.co/elT2zrCgE0 #TipYourBartenders #StayHomeSaveLives pic.twitter.com/77tVacDGBM

The news comes in addition to the $15,000 donation Aviation has already made to the USBG, whose charity has started a Covid-19 relief fund for any bartender, regardless of membership status, currently affected by reduced hours or job loss due to the ongoing crisis.
