We love One Sage Gin!
One Gin‘s key botanical is fresh English sage. Also, every bottle of One Gin – just like One Water – helps to fund clean water projects around the world!
One Gin was launched on World Water Day in 2017, the first spirit launched by the One Brand, known for One Water. The idea behind it was to merge their love of beautiful, premium craft gin with their belief in making the world a better place.
It struck the team (who are based in leafy Richmond upon Thames) that while there were hundreds of gins out there, there was real appetite for a distinctive, savoury offering so they started exploring flavours native to the UK, such as nettle, hawthorn and camomile. The answer came in the form of one of our most loved and multi-facetted botanicals: fresh English sage and One Gin was born.
One Gin has launched its second expression, Sage & Apple, to great success, and is now in Tesco stores nationwide, Ocado and Anthropologie to name but a few.
One Gin was the first gin created to give back to a global humanitarian cause. Every bottle funds clean, safe water projects in the world’s poorest communities through The One Foundation, which works with carefully selected local partners around the world to implement life-changing programmes in sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene.
ONE SAGE GIN
One Sage Gin is a bold, savoury gin abundant with fresh sage, juniper and citrus, copper distilled into a wonderfully smooth aromatic spirit. This was their first gin and is a winner of an IWSC Gold Award. It has also built a following among gin connoisseurs and is a favourite of the Bar Manager at Claridge’s, where it is served as a naked martini with a twist.
Perfect serve: A large measure of One Gin, poured over ice, topped up with a premium tonic water, garnished with a twist of orange zest.
Tasting Notes: An overall aromatic nose of fresh sage, juniper and freshly cut sandalwood, with hints of orange marmalade. Leads to a palate of juniper, sweet and dry citrus, a hint of spice and a warm, smooth savoury finish.
ONE SAGE & APPLE GIN
An orchard fresh twist on the original, this wonderfully crisp, fragrant gin is the perfect balance of juniper, fresh sage and crisp russet apple. Tapping into the current trend for flavoured gins, but without creating an overly sweet gin, the team use the oil from the pip of the russet apple to deliver crisp apple freshness distilled as a London Dry.
Perfect serve: A large measure of One Gin, poured over ice, topped up with a premium tonic water, garnished with fresh slices of apple and a sage leaf or two.
Tasting Notes: An overall aromatic nose of fresh and candied apple, freshly cut wood and juniper, with hints of gooseberry and orange marmalade. Leads to a palate of fresh apple, orange peel and soft juniper, mixed spice and Turkish delight.
So far, The One Foundation has raised over £20 million, changing the lives of over 3.8 million people, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa. Their goal is to reach £30 million by 2030.
