Ounce Gin 'Signature'

Signature Drinks

When we made the decision to create Gin, foremost in our minds was how would our Gin be served. The ubiquitous Gin and Tonic is a simple delicious drink drunk by all. And it is in the G&T that we wanted Ounce Gin ‘Signature’ to shine. From this we reverse engineered Ounce Gin ‘signature’ to stand out in the most simple format. We wanted to create a gin that was perfect with a wheel of orange as the garnish. Vanilla and Cardamom support and intermingle with Orange and Ruby Red Grapefruit to create a luscious and extremely moreish G&T.

The Specs

– One part Ounce Gin ‘signature’

– Three parts tonic

– Good quality ice

– orange wheel garnish

Simple, delicious.

The Negroni is an all time favourite of the IMD team. We consider it right up the top of the list of human achievements, three ingredients, equal measures, so easy, so tasty. This was the second drink that we wanted to ensure our Ounce Gin ‘Signature’ was the perfect match.


The Specs


– One part Ounce Gin ‘Signature’

– One part Ruby Bitter

The Imperial Measures Distilling team have always enjoyed a Sour, one of our regulars is The Army & Navy cocktail. This drink is a simple 4:2:1 ratio that as long as you can find some Orgeat syrup you’re away. 4 parts strong, two parts sour and 1 part sweet. This balance of components is the basis for balancing a sour cocktail and this is a particularly complex and rewarding example. The addition of Angostura Bitters lifts the aromatics and pairs beautifully with the botanicals in Ounce Gin ‘Signature’

The Specs

– Two parts Ounce Gin ‘Signature’

– One part fresh squeezed lemon juice

– Half a part Orgeat Syrup (maybe a touch more depending on your preferences)

– 3-4 dashes Angostura Bitters

– Shake and double strain into a chilled coup

– Garnish with a lemon twist

Ounce Gin 'Bold'

Signature Drinks

The G&T we suggest for Ounce Gin ‘Bold’ is something a little unusual but still should be readily available in your favourite bar or at home. We have built Juniper forward, herbal, savoury style that pairs perfectly with the addition of a green olive. If you’re not an olive fan, don’t worry, try garnishing with a sprig of thyme or simply a slice of lemon.
