Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/08/2017

Appearance

(sample bottle best before 05/Oct/17) Crystal clear with high carbonation.

Aroma

Quinine and faint lemony citrus with an underlying minerality.

Taste

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.

Aftertaste

Zesty lemon and quinine slowly fade.

Overall

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.
