Do you like the sound of gin infused with English sage and apple?
For us One Gin stands out amongst the multitude of new craft gins. It’s key botanical, fresh English sage, creates distinctively aromatic G&T’s and cocktails, or for an extra layer try One Sage and Apple Gin, for a characteristic orchard twist. We also love that every bottle of One Gin helps to fund clean water projects in the worlds poorest communities.
In perfect time for Christmas, we’ve rounded up our favourite One Gin cocktail recipes, plus, you can shop One Gin offers in our Exclusives shop!

— Nordic Rose —
A beautifully balanced floral and fruity cocktail, which we believe is best enjoyed as a refreshing after dinner treat.
15ml One Sage & Apple Gin infused with lemon verbena (1g per 100ml of gin)
60ml Waldon Mead
1 Scoop rosehip sorbet*
Rose petal garnish
Build in a champagne flute and garnish with a rose petal.
* Purchase online, or to make rosehip sorbet at home: mix 300g of rosehip puree with 50g caster sugar, 300ml rosehip tea and the juice of 2 lemons. Heat all gently until homogenous then pass through a fine sieve and cool. Add to an ice cream machine and churn until sorbet consistency is achieved. If no ice cream maker is available, simply freeze in Tupperware, breaking up and churning every hour until desired consistency is achieved.
