Tasting notes

"These are the ultimate mixers-and just as good on their own"

Tom Parker Bowles, Mail on Sunday
Pure and crystal clear.
A slightly sweet, floral aroma from the elderflowers, combined with a subtle citrus note.
The sweetness of the elderflower is perfectly balanced with the soft bitterness of quinine. A uniquely clean and fresh finish with none of the cloying aftertastes you get from artificial sweeteners.
A smooth mouthfeel enhanced by the high quality carbonation process.

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.

Our Ingredients

2 of 4 ingredients


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.

Unlike most mixers and soft drinks on the market today which contain saccharine or aspartame, our products contain no artificial sweeteners. In our regular products we use cane sugar and in our Refreshingly Light products we use fruit sugar. These naturally sourced 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 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, perfectly formed bubbles, we have been able to create an incredibly smooth finish to our drinks.
