Ryan Reynolds jokingly sent a bottle of Buckingham Palace Gin to Sir Paul McCartney.
Reynolds posted a screenshot on Instagram of a fake order confirmation from the Royal Collection Shop, Buckingham Palace's online store.
The delivery address read: "Sir Paul McCartney, 221B Baker Street, Downton Abbey Rd, 1D4 LYF, United Kingdom" — a collection of British cultural references.
Aviation Gin owner Ryan Reynolds jokingly sent a bottle of Buckingham Palace gin to Sir Paul McCartney in an Instagram gag.
On Tuesday, Reynolds posted a screenshot of an order confirmation from the Royal Collection Shop, Buckingham Palace's online store selling a variety of things including food, gifts, and their recently-launched dry gin.
In the screenshot, the billing address read: "Ryan Reynolds, 1 Upmanship Much Dr, Notcoolington, WTF FML, United Kingdom."
Meanwhile, the joke delivery address read: "Sir Paul McCartney, 221B Baker Street, Downton Abbey Rd, 1D4 LYF, United Kingdom" — a collection of British pop culture references.
The shipping method was apparently the Royal Space Force, while the payment method read "Loonie." Reynolds captioned the photo: "Pre-ordered."
Reynolds and McCartney previously met in August 2018, with Reynolds posting a selfie of the two of them to his Instagram. He captioned the photo: "Have you ever had a dream to meet someone so badly and somehow it comes true? You're welcome, Paul."
Reynolds bought Aviation Gin in 2018 after being so impressed by the taste of the brand, he said.
Buckingham Palace launched the gin on Monday, which you can preorder on their website for around $50 dollars. However, the product sold out in under eight hours.
The product description on the website reads: "Presenting the launch of our Buckingham Palace gin. The spirit has a unique royal origin, with many of its citrus and herbal notes sourced from botanicals gathered in the Buckingham Palace Gardens."
The description says that "lemon, verbena, hawthorn berries and mulberry leaves are among the 12 botanicals hand-picked for the gin in the Gardens at Buckingham Palace."
The website also recommends a serving method: "pour a measure of the gin into an ice-filled short tumbler before topping up with tonic and garnishing with a slice of lemon."
