Q Indian Tonic Water
Purpose-built to mix with London Dry gins. More bitter and a little sweeter than our original Q Tonic Water but with all the extra carbonation, Q Indian Tonic is crafted to complement the strongest, most juniper-forward gins.
Quinine comes from the bark of the Cinchona tree. Or at least it used to, back when the gin & tonic was invented. We’ve returned to the original essence of tonic water with quinine from Cinchona bark grown in its native habitat, the slopes of the Peruvian Andes.
A drink stays fizzier longer when it starts with more carbonation. So we use a custom, thicker glass bottle that enables us to use 4.5 gas volumes of carbonation.
2 oz Premium London Dry Gin
