Category: Quinine Tonic
Product of: United States
A quinine concentrate designed to be mixed with gin or vodka and lengthened with soda water to make a highball. As you’d expect of such a tonic, quinine from the Cinchona Tree is the main botanical with cane sugar used to counter its bitterness. Small Batch Tonic should be refrigerated upon opening. Read more

(Batch No. 000055) Clear rose gold.
Subdued, earthy new leather with subtle floral and herbal notes reminiscent of herbal tea. Not recognisably quinine.
Syrupy sweet entry. Confected lemon, sharp citric acid before fading with lemon curd and bitter quinine.
When sampled in a G&T we found the recommended 3/4oz too much, producing a noticeably sweet, almost cloying G&T. Reduce to 1/2oz resulted in a G&T that was light on quinine but allowed the gin to shine through. However, even this was not as refreshing, lacking the crispness and bite of a traditional G&T. We fail to see how this is an improvement on a quality tonic water. Certainly more agro to use.
