About One Gin

It’s been said that the tiny flutter of a butterfly’s wing can trigger a cyclone on the other side of the world. This belief – that small acts can lead to great change – is at the heart of what we do.

It all started with water. Duncan Goose started ethical bottled water brand, One, after being caught in Hurricane Mitch in Honduras – a natural disaster responsible for killing 20,000 people – and experiencing first-hand, life without access to safe drinking water. Thirteen years on, The One Brand has raised over £19.3 million for water projects, transforming the lives over 3.5 million people in need.

One Gin was launched on World Water Day in 2017 to continue and scale the One journey; this very special premium gin was created to delight your palate of course, but every bottle of One Gin also helps to tackle the global water crisis. We donate at least 10% of our profits to fund life-changing water projects in the world’s poorest communities.

A few months after it was launched, it was 1 of only 20 gins selected from 379 entries in a blind tasting to win a Gold Medal at the prestigious IWSC Awards. Fast forward 20 months, and One Gin is now available in John Lewis & Partners, Harvey Nichols, selected Tesco stores and independent stockists across the UK. It has also joined the gin menu at Claridge’s and is served in more than 100 bars and restaurants, including China Tang at The Dorchester, The Berkeley, Hawksmoor, Mr Fogg’s, Sticky Walnut and Gin 71. And this is only the beginning.

Establishing the One Gin brand has been a huge focus for 2018, where we’ve re-launched our website, social media channels, newsletter and other marketing platforms. We’re now looking for an enthusiastic, creative and result-driven Digital Marketing Manager to join our small team to help build the brand, engage customers and drive sales across all channels.
