After a night drinking good gin with great friends and lousy tonic water, Jordan was inspired to create a better tonic water. Q Mixers Tonic Water has sharp flavor and high carbonation, so it doesn’t get lost in your drink. And it’s much less sweet so the subtleties of a great gin shine through.
What to do? Sure it prevented malaria. But their bitter quinine medicine was tough to get down. Luckily for us, a few ingenious British officers resolved this quandary by mixing their meds with gin, sugar, and carbonated water. The gin and tonic was born. 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.
Agave nectar is prized by chefs worldwide for its gently rounded sweetness. We use just dash of organic agave, not tons of high fructose corn syrup or sugar. This allows the subtleties in your gin to shine through. It also means Q Mixers Tonic has about half the calories of other tonic waters.
A drink stays fizzier longer when it starts with more carbonation. We make sure all of our mixers have the optimal amount of carbonation so you never have a flat drink.
