(sample bottle best before 05/Oct/17) Crystal clear with high carbonation.
Quinine and faint lemony citrus with an underlying minerality.
Well-balanced and softer than some tonic waters with quinine to the fore but relatively subtle. Indeed, the overall flavour of this tonic is subdued compared to others. Attractive lemony lightly acidic bite.
Zesty lemon and quinine slowly fade.
Relatively subdued in flavour compared to traditional tonic waters with the reduced quinine both allowing gin’s flavour to shine in a G&T, and making this tonic taste faintly sweeter when drunk on its own.
