Birthday Reflections

This month we celebrated our fourth birthday.

I looked back at the post I wrote a year ago, going into lockdown with optimism and a sense that it wouldn’t last too long. Little did we know.

It’s a been a tough year on many levels there’s no denying it, and losing the on-trade was a hard knock. However, what I will be taking out of this last year and hopefully remembering in years to come, is how resilient we can be when we have support around us. Thank you to all the people around us who believe in what we are trying to achieve and contribute in so many ways, big and small, obvious and less so.

We are incredibly proud of our small but perfectly formed team. Despite it all, in the last year we’ve managed to keep going, to adapt to drinker’s new ways of buying, to launch a very special limited edition which sold out in a month, and to incubate our beautiful cans that launched earlier this week. Not least, we raised over £5,000 last year for The One Foundation, and whilst we hope to raise much more, we know this is going to make a tangible impact on the other side of the world.

Here’s to the next chapter. We have many plans in the pipeline and I hope – and believe – that our 5th birthday update will be bursting with exciting news.

In the meantime, there is one person we’d like to raise our G&T glasses to, over and above everyone. Thank you to Duncan for his endless support, words of wisdom, guessing which ones were the good days and which ones not so good. The road is much less rocky with you alongside us.

One G&Ts: a refreshingly simple new way to join our butterfly effect

We are so happy to introduce to you our brand new G&T cans, inspired by our two best selling gins…. The first gin & tonic cans funding life-changing projects around the world.

We are finally transitioning into spring, the days are getting warmer and longer, and next week, we will finally be able to meet with friends outside again. This makes it the perfect time for us to launch these light and fresh g&t’s to enjoy anywhere. 

Our new One G&T’s are 100% natural (just gin, tonic and nothing else) low sugar, and low ABV. Available in two flavours, the first uses the award-winning One Sage Gin, mixed with a specially developed premium tonic water and a twist of fresh orange zest, delicious out of the can or over ice with a twist of orange. The second gin and tonic uses the popular One Sage & Apple Gin as a base, perfect to enjoy on the go, at a picnic or over ice with a crisp apple slice at home. 

Both cans launch today to coincide with our 4th birthday and World Water Day. 

Like the rest of our portfolio, these premium cans will make a difference to many people’s lives. A minimum of 10% of our profits funds clean, safe water projects in the world’s poorest communities making a tangible difference to people’s lives one can at a time, one day at a time. In the last 15 years the One brand has raised over £20 million and helped change the lives of over 4 million people. 

These cans are the perfect addition to any sunny day. Here’s how our team likes to enjoy them:

Flora, Market Executive: ‘I love to take these to Clapham Common with me to sit and enjoy with my friends. They taste delicious and look great on instagram!’ 

Harry, Head of Marketing: ‘I like to wind down with a chilled can in the bath after a long day at work.’

Ian, Co-Founder: I like to enjoy one on a Sunday afternoon stroll in Richmond Park.’

Cecile, Co-Founder: I love mine in the garden in a tall glass with lots of ice, as a mid week treat.’

Johnny, Commercial Director: ‘I like to enjoy mine on the Surrey Hills with my new puppy!’

We have sent these special new products to some of our nearest and dearest to get their honest feedback and have been overwhelmed with the positive feedback! 

“The can design is divine; very pretty, very stylish”

“Apple & sage served over ice with a slice of apple – love package, smells amazing, apple flavour really nice, refreshing, tastes healthy!”

Gin & macaroons: A perfect gift that gives back this Mother’s Day
