Tasting notes

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

Tom Parker Bowles, Mail on Sunday
Pure and crystal clear.
Clean and fresh with a citrus and aromatic hint.
A very soft flavour. The subtle and supportive citrus and fruit notes are perfectly balanced by the bitterness of the quinine.
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.

Our Ingredients

2 of 4 ingredients


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.

Gin & Tonic


  • Indian Tonic Water
  • 1 measure (50ml) of your favourite gin
  • Fresh ice - at least four big cubes
  • Lime - a curl of the rind of a lime - It's the oils you want not the flesh (or a slice if you really must)


Using a large wine glass or a tall, slim glass, add the ice first, then pour over the gin of your choice followed by Fever-Tree Indian tonic water, from a fresh bottle. Finally, add the curl of lime, running it around the rim of the glass before dropping it into the drink. Make sure you are quick when adding your garnish as you want that fizz to tickle your nose as you smell the aromas of G&T. Drink and enjoy.
