Galentine’s day

This year, we have decided to honour Saint Galantine.

While Saint Valentine, Galentine’s better-known male counterpart, is the patron saint of love, happy marriages, and betrothed couples, Saint Galentine is the heavenly protector of female friendship, and indispensable best, best friends.  

Created by a fictional character: Leslie Knope of Parks and Recreation, Saint Galantine’s day  – the 13th Feb- is the opportunity to stay well away from expensive restaurants, red roses, and cheesy cards and to stay at home and shower your closest friends with love and attention.

Here are a few twists on classics to make it the best Love Fest yet

Check out our Galentine’s Pinterest board here:

   1. Food

Grazing platters are the way forward – stunning, fresh and requiring no-prep so you can focus on loving your guests. Platter London specialises in this kind of catering  – Check out their gorgeous options.

Supper London offers delivery straight from London’s Michelin star and high-end restaurants to your living room. If you feel like really spoiling yourselves this is the delivery service for you.


   2. Drinks














We asked Our brand ambassador Joe Wood to design a simple Love Cocktail to make with local Tesco ingredients. Make a jug to share with the girls.


3. Music

Karaoke can strike fear in the bravest souls but did you know that singing with other people can increase bonding and make you feel even closer to your BFF’s -According to a published study by experimental psychology researchers from the University of Oxford, bonding over karaoke can build relationships. (you can read more here) .

And help is at hand with karaoke machines with built-in autotune meaning even the most out of tune singer can sound like Beyonce. 


  4. Chocolate 

A girl’s night in requires chocolate. Think local and hand-crafted. Being based in Richmond, William Curley is a favourite of ours. William Curley uses only the freshest, most natural produce and mentors young talent within the business…Don’t expect any leftovers though. 



   5. Presents


Treat your girls to a little something they can take away – We love personalised love hearts


Anthropologie (The newest high street stockist of One Gin) also has a range of candles, soaps and scrubs that you can gift your galentine so they can spoil themselves when there just isn’t enough time (or money!)  for a trip to the spa.


   6. flowers

We have yet to meet someone who isn’t touched by receiving a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Yellow roses are perfect for Galentine’s day as they are commonly associated with friendship. “This cheerful hue declares, ‘You’re a great friend.’ You might want to stay away from yellow if you are in a romantic relationship, though, as some people claim they represent jealousy and infidelity.


Happy Galentine’s night to all the girls and a big thank you to everyone who chooses One Gin. We know we can’t solve the water crisis overnight but we can change lives One bottle at a time, One day at a time. 

Romantic Bars and restaurants in London for any budget

Valentine’s Day – You either love it or hate it. Some people really want to push the boat out and some want to have a quiet drink in their local, and others want to have their G&T at home and forget about all the fuss. We’ve picked out a few of our favourite spots for a drink or bite to eat in London to help you celebrate the day so many of us love to hate. 


   1.The White Horse – Richmond

We couldn’t start this list with anywhere else. The white horse is our own local but it’s also one of the comfiest pubs you’ll be in.  It’s a spacious, low-ceilinged pub with wooden floors, mismatched tables and an ‘edible’ beer garden.

A double One Gin and tonic is £12


   2. The Shard 

Re-opening on February 5th after undergoing a refit, you best book a table now. In honour of their re-opening One Gin will be appearing on their famed cocktail menu. 

Cocktails in the Shard run between £14 -£20


   3. Mews of Mayfair 

Mews of Mayfair is a unique hideaway, tucked away in one of London’s historic courtyards. With a choice of different bars situated around their courtyard. Mews is the home of the One Gin Gallery, our beautiful home in the centre of the city. The decor in this room is inspired by the life-changing work of The One Foundation, funding clean water projects in the world’s poorest communities.  We know we can’t change the world overnight but we make a difference one bottle at a time, one day at a time.

One Gin is priced at £11 on their Courtyard menu


   4. Claridge’s hotel


If you want to splash out. At Claridge’s, the bars and restaurants are far from places simply to eat and drink. They are places to discover new flavours as well as to revisit favourite classics. Each of their restaurants and bars offers a different experience – all underpinned by impeccable service.

One Gin is priced at £17 – But we recommend asking for a One Gin Martini for £21



   5. The Understudy –  National Theatre 

For the more cultured among us, how about Valentine’s Day at the National Theatre.

Following his smash-hit Barber Shop Chronicles, Inua Ellams returns to the National Theatre with Three Sisters which is showing this Valentine’s day. Enjoy a drink before or after at The Understudy. Situated right on London’s vibrant South Bank, it has riverside seating and serves a range of draught beers, wines and cocktails.

One Gin is priced at £4.40 for 25ml




   6. Hawksmoor 

Hawksmoor Knightsbridge has a glamorous Art Deco interior. They serve delicious steaks from ethically-reared traditional British breeds. The menu also features a number of seafood dishes such as Singapore-style Lobster Roll with Sriracha & Yuzu and Vietnamese-inspired Dressed Oysters. 

One Gin is Priced at £9.50


Or….Stay at home.


Why not try this easy to follow the recipe by our Brand Ambassador Joe Wood and make the delicious and flirtatious French Kiss in the comfort of your own kitchen.  You can even buy a set of two Beautiful Root7 Geo Glasses and a 70cl of One Gin for £55.
