ARLINGTON, Va.– The Air Force Association (AFA), a non-profit 501c3, announced that they are partnering with Aviation American Gin on a summer beverage promotion whereby a percentage of proceeds from the promotion will go toward programs that support Airmen and their families.
Running this summer from Memorial Day through Labor Day, Aviation will release limited-edition point-of-sale material in collaboration with the AFA, the lead non-profit advocacy group of the US Air Force, available at select retailers nationwide. The partnership, which will be displayed on select bottles with American inspired imagery and a message to support our Airmen, will be supported via social media and POS.
“The Air Force Association has a long-standing history in support of Total Force Airmen including Active Duty, Guard, Reserves, Civilians, Retirees, Veterans and family members,” said General “Orville” Wright, USAF Ret., AFA’s president. “Aviation American Gin’s generous partnership helps AFA fulfill our mission to honor the men and women who selflessly serve our nation.”
Aviation American Gin, part of Davos Brands, takes great pride in supporting military charities and previously sponsored AFA’s Wounded Airman Program and SkyBall, a world-class event hosted by the Airpower Foundation out of Ft Worth, Texas, dedicated to supporting families of fallen military heroes.
Aviation Gin is an icon in the American distilling movement and is proud to be an American Gin made and bottled in Portland, Oregon. “We’re proud to be partnering with the AFA,” said Ryan Reynolds, owner, Aviation Gin. “It’s an honor for Aviation to be supporting the Air Force but, to be clear, we only recommend drinking Aviation American Ginafter flying.”
