Ounce Gin is crafted by the Imperial Measures team, Chris Jones and David Danby. Friends, colleagues and really just a couple of old soaks who have spent the better part of their lives either behind, in front or on top of bars. After working together for many years they threw their hats into the ring as a craft producer and are overjoyed at what Ounce Gin has become. 

When they made the decision to create a Gin, foremost was how would Githeirn be served. Being at the beginning of the journey they felt that the first Gin should start at the beginning too. The ubiquitous Gin and Tonic is a simple delicious drink drunk by all. And it is in the G&T that they wanted Ounce Gin to shine. From this they crafted Ounce Gin to stand out in the most simple of formats and it does just that. 

One part Ounce Gin, two parts tonic, good ice and an orange garnish be it wedge, wheel, peel or flamed. Simple, delicious. 

Now, with the Ruby Bitter Aperitif and the flamboyant Bold Gin (hello Martinis), the IMD lineup looks more exciting and relevant than ever.
