Following a debut with Craft Gin Club last spring and increasing on-trade interest, this month sees One Gin’s new Sage & Apple expression launch into grocery retail with a national listing in Tesco.
Originally a spin-off of ethical bottled water brand One Water, One Gin donates 10% of its profit to fund life-changing water projects in the world’s poorest communities. In doing this, the brand aims to work towards a world in which everyone has access to clean, safe water.
The Covid-19 pandemic has further highlighted the problem (or lack) of universal water access; over 785 million people do not have access to clean water, and are now forced to endure the ongoing pandemic without that basic right.
IWSC Gold award-winning One Gin launched One Sage & Apple Gin last spring, which went on to win awards and debut successfully through Craft Gin Club, the UK’s largest gin subscription club.
Ian Spooner, Co-Founder at One Gin said: “From a flying start thanks to Craft Gin Club, this last year has demonstrated a huge appetite for our orchard fresh twist on One Gin. It is a wonderfully crisp, fragrant spirit and a perfect balance of juniper, crisp russet apple and fresh English sage. It responds to the trend towards fruitier gins, but maintains a unique freshness”.
“We are hugely grateful to Tesco for helping us to share this with a wider audience and further support our cause of delivering safe, clean water to the world’s poorest communities.”
One Sage & Apple Gin goes sale in Tesco with an RSP of £38. One Gin donates a minimum of 10% of their profit to The One Foundation (UK Registered Charity No.1118810), to help fund water utility infrastructures in poor communities. So far, the One brand has raised over £20m for life-changing water projects.
