One Gin

How ethical is One Gin?

One Gin is included in The Good Shopping Guide’s Spirits Ethical Ratings Table. In our Ratings Table, the brand obtains a strong Good Shopping Guide Ethical Score and thereby passes our Ethical Benchmark as a good ethical brand. We encourage other Spirits companies to follow One Gin’s lead, and implement more ethical rules and procedures. One Gin has a strong focus on ethics within its brand ethos and would benefit from an application for Ethical Accreditation. This prestigious Accreditation would quickly show customers that the brand is ethical, in turn increasing customer and investor confidence.

More information on the issues this industry faces may be found in The Good Shopping Guide to Ethical Spirits brands. Then, in our Spirits Ethical Ratings Table compare it to other brands.

One Gin is a small scale company owned by Global Ethics Liquor Co. Ltd.

In what areas does One Gin perform well? 

One Gin performs well in many areas of business. The brand has a strong ethical ethos which can be found on One Gin‘s ‘Our Story’ page, discussing the company’s aims to provide clean drinking water through The One Foundation. It also relieves a high score for having no links to any Nuclear, Fossil Fuel, Animal Welfare issues or Political Donations and Armaments. One Gin has received no Public Record Criticisms.

How could One Gin rate higher on our Spirits Ethical Ratings Table

One Gin is eligible for Ethical Accreditation due to its strong score according to The Good Shopping Guide, this is examined by looking at The Environment, Animals and People within a company and how much the brand considers this.

Ethical Accreditation boosts customer trust in a brand and serves as a certification for businesses to demonstrate that they meet an ethical standard. One Gin would benefit from this Accreditation, but could further improve its Ethical Rating score further by releasing a Genetic Modification statement as well as the introduction of an Organic Gin or Vegan alcohol range.
