Tasting notes

The lemons create a translucent liquid that is pale yellow in colour.
A burst of fresh lemons hits you as you open the bottle.
The soft, subtle and supportive lemon notes are balanced by the bitterness of the quinine to give a refreshingly crisp flavour.
High carbonation delivers the aromas and taste in a classic refreshing style.

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.

'Sfumatrice' lemon extracts

Some of the world's finest lemons grow on the fertile slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily, extracts of which are used in some of our tonic waters and also in our Sicilian Lemonade. To extract the high quality oils from the skin of the lemons, Sfumatrice equipment is used to gently hand press the lemons - normally a process reserved for the perfume industry. Again, we are the only drinks company to be using such a high quality extract.

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.
