Aromatic Tonic Water
By blending the gentle bitterness of South American angostura bark with aromatic botanicals such as cardamom, pimento berry and ginger, we’ve created a delicious, unique tonic water. Created to enhance juniper-rich and robust gins, Aromatic tonic can be enjoyed in a Pink G&T or as a sophisticated soft drink on its own.
Ways to enjoy
Our Aromatic Tonic can be found in 200ml bottles in bars, restaurants and pubs while our 500ml bottles are great for enjoying a few drinks with friends and can be bought from Waitrose.

Quinine is the key ingredient, and the essential bitterness, in tonic water. The brand name Fever-Tree was chosen as it is the colloquial name for the cinchona tree, the bark of which produces quinine. After much research, a specific type of fever tree plantation (known as cinchona Ledgeriana) located on the Rwanda/Congo border, was found to be producing the purest quinine in the world. For Charles and Tim, there was no other option but to source Fever-Tree's quinine from this plantation - the only drinks company to be doing so.

Fresh Green Ginger
The discovery of this ginger from the Ivory Coast was a real 'eureka' moment for Charles and Tim. Unlike any other ginger, it has an incredible lemongrass freshness to its aroma due to the oils being extracted as soon as the ginger is harvested. Charles has visited the farmers in the Ivory Coast who are cultivating this unique ginger and distilling the oils specially for Fever-Tree.

Unlike most mixers and soft drinks on the market today which contain saccharine or aspartame, our products are sweetened with only natural sugars. In our regular products we use cane sugar and in our Naturally Light products we use fruit sugar. These natural sweeteners create a fuller mouth-feel with none of the cloying aftertastes associated with cheaper, artificial alternatives.

Soft Spring Water
We use the very best quality natural spring water from a source in rural Staffordshire. With a low mineral content, this water is very soft, thus ensuring that our drinks are subtle in their taste and clean in their finish. High carbonation is a vital component of any mixed drink which is why we carbonate our products to an exceptionally high level. By using small, perfect bubbles we have been able to create an even smoother finish to our drinks. The smaller bubbles, combined with the viscosity created by using natural sugars, means that all of our drinks stay carbonated for longer - crucial when you are mixing them with spirits.

Bitter orange is another key ingredient in any tonic water and can be sourced from all over the world. However, we worked with a specialist ingredient hunter who told us about a rare and unique extract that he had discovered while in Tanzania. In a small town called Zygoma, bitter oranges are hand pressed under cold conditions which prevents the loss of the volatile fragrant components.
