New craft gin launched by the ethical British drinks brand One
Your G&T can help fund sustainable water projects across the globe thanks to the One Brand
You may have picked up a bottle of One water in the supermarket as an interesting alternative to Evian or Highland Spring, but the drinks brand are about much more than just quenching your thirst.
All proceeds from the bottles of water sold go towards projects that help support some of most vulnerable people around the world. In 2003, advertising guru Duncan Goose returned from a two-year motorbiking trip with the idea to start the ethical water brand. And now, 14 years later, the brand has moved into uncharted waters with the launch of their new craft gin.
The distillation process uses nine different botanicals from all across the globe, plus the old British favourite: Sage (taken straight from the grounds of the distillery). Sarah Thompson, the multi award-winning Master Distiller, handcrafts the gin from Blackdown Distillery in Sussex. Before the gin is filtered seven times, it's distilled in an alembic copper still, giving it its smooth taste.
Where can I buy it?
One Gin can be bought at World Duty Free stores across the UK for £36.99 per litre. To try it in a cocktail, head to Tales of The Cocktail on Tour in Edinburgh from Sat 1–Wed 5 Apr where expert drinks consultant Joseph Wood will serve tipples designed to complement the spirit.
How should I drink it?
The One team recommend drinking their gin over ice with Peter Spanton's No.9 Cardamom Tonic, garnished with a slice of apple and a sage leaf.
To date, One has raised over £15 million, helping over three million people. Help them reach their target to raise £20 million by 2020 by drinking their new, tasty, ethical gin.
