About this item
- Spirit mixer
- Clean and refreshing taste and aroma
- Designed to enhance gin, vodka, and other fine spirit
By blending luscious botanical oils with spring water and quinine of the highest quality from the 'fever trees' from the eastern hill ranges of the Democratic Republic of Congo, we have created a delicious, award-winning tonic water. Designed to enhance the very best gins, vodkas and fortified wines, like vermouth, fino sherry and white port.
Our Premium Indian Tonic water uses a handful of different botanicals, including our distinctive natural quinine and oils from Mexican Bitter Oranges, to give a uniquely clean and refreshing taste and aroma.
The story of Fever-Tree is one of a pursuit for the best. In 2004, unhappy with the poor state of spirit mixers, founders Tim and Charles began trawling through history books and poring over maps to find sources of the very best ingredients, eventually travelling to the ends of the earth to get hold of them. Our Indian Tonic Water still uses natural quinine from the deep forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo, found by Tim and Charles on one of their first trips.
QUININE: Cinchona ledgeriana
Source: Democratic Republic of Congo
Quinine is the key ingredient that creates the gentle bitterness in tonic water. Our name was chosen as it is the colloquial name for the cinchona tree, the bark of which produces quinine. After discovering early 17th century references in the British library, Fever-Tree located the only remaining plantation of original Cinchona Ledgeriana trees (known locally as ‘fever trees’) which produce some of the highest quality quinine in the world, located in the Democratic Republic of Congo. There was no other option but to source Fever-Tree’s quinine from this area.
