About us

The age of the dismal mixer is over.

How it started

If 3/4 of your Gin & Tonic is the tonic, make sure you use the best

Tim Warrillow

Following a 'tonic tasting' on the US market, Charles Rolls - who built his reputation running Plymouth Gin - joined forces with Tim Warrillow, who had a background in luxury food marketing, to analyse the composition of mixers. They discovered that the majority were preserved with sodium benzoate or similar substances, while cheap orange aromatics such as decanal and artificial sweeteners (such as saccharin) were widespread.

And so started a 15 month journey. Days in the British Library researching quinine sources from as far back as 1620, trips to find the purest strains of this key ingredient and 5 iterations of the recipe were tasted before Charles and Tim were happy with the result and the first bottle of Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water was produced in 2005.

Why we're different

We only ever use the highest quality natural ingredients

The taste

Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water launched in the UK in early 2005, the brand name chosen due to fever tree being the colloquial name for the cinchona tree in which quinine, a key ingredient for tonic, is found. The highest quality quinine was sourced from the Rwanda Congo border and blended with spring water and eight botanical flavours, including rare ingredients such as marigold extracts and a bitter orange from Tanzania. Crucially, no artificial sweeteners, preservatives or flavourings were added.

Since launching, we have launched a new product every year - each taking a similarly intrepid attitude to sourcing quality botanicals. The result is seven delicious drinks to mix or enjoy on their own.

The fizziness

Our highly carbonated drinks, consist of small 'champagne' bubbles for a smooth, delicate texture that carries the flavour of the botancials in each mixer and enhances the aromas of the spirits they are intended to be mixed with. Packaged in 200ml and 500ml glass bottles for either the perfect single serve or a larger sharing occasion. The glass packaging was designed to reflect the premium natural values of the brand and to ensure freshness and flavour.
