Elderflower Tonic Water

Offering a light and subtle character, the delicate and sweet flavour of elderflower is perfectly balanced by the soft bitterness of the quinine. Providing a summery twist to the classic gin and tonic, the refreshing floral flavour works equally well as a sophisticated soft drink.

Ways to enjoy

Our Elderflower 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 supermarkets and independent retailers.

Pure and crystal clear.

A slightly sweet, floral aroma from the elderflowers, combined with a subtle citrus note.
Flavour
The sweetness of the elderflower is perfectly balanced with the soft bitterness of natural quinine. A uniquely clean and fresh finish with none of the cloying aftertastes you get from artificial sweeteners.
Texture
A smooth mouthfeel enhanced by the champagne style carbonation.

Quinine

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. Read more about Tim's trip out to the Congo in the 'Latest' section.

Elderflowers

To capture the finest elderflower flavour, we source hand-picked flowers from a small Gloucestershire farm on the edge of the Cotswolds. Renowned for growing some of the highest quality elder bushes in the UK, the elderflowers are hand-collected on the farm between May and June when the region is in full bloom. The unique flavour extraction process begins within hours of picking, to ensure that none of the delicate floral flavour is lost.

Natural Sugar

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 fom 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, champagne style 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.
