Schweppes – what’s new and what’s not

Schweppes took the opportunity of exhibiting at Lisbon Bar show to show their refreshed mixers range. The premium portfolio is now organized by the botanical or principal flavouring and by the country that inspired it in a total of 6 products, 2 of which are tonic waters.
Their latest model comes from Japan and is called Matcha, the powdered green tea that gives everything its aroma and bright green colour that is so characteristic of the tea. For now, we can tell you just that it is not a tonic water as it has no quinine in the list of ingredients. A complete review of this product will be with you soon.
From Jamaica and Thailand come, respectively, Ginger Ale and Ginger Beer, mixers that had already joined their premium range last year. The novelty is in the neck of the bottles which after being restyled show off the stand out botanical of each mixer. Now appear Ginger Ale and intense ginger that reinforces its fresh, lively character and Ginger Beer and Chilli to wake up the more distracted with a piquant edge.
From Hawaii comes the Hibiscus which was already in the premium portfolio. With a strong pink colour and a floral hint it can be surprisingly versatile as it can be used as a mixer and as a standalone drink.
The first tonic water in this range comes to us from Brazil with the aromatic touch of Pink Pepper. This tonic that we already knew stays in the portfolio of the premium mixes and promises to delight those who want a little extra bite to their tonic.
To the contrary of the Pink Pepper, the Ginger and Cardamom has left the premium range. For the lovers of this tonic that crossed the fresh heat of ginger with the exotic spiciness of cardamom, get to the supermarket fast!
Jacob Schweppe, the “father” of Schweppes, was born in Germany in the middle of the 18th century. It is to him that we owe a debt for one of the biggest inventions of that century, tonic water, which since then has always been connected to India. It is that connection that Schweppes make in the redesign of the bottle of Schweppes Original Premium. While the recipe remains the same, and it is important to point this out, the brand distinguishes the hint of lime that characterizes the Schweppes tonic water. This is a neutral tonic although lightly flavoured, like all existing tonics on the market, and not a deliberately flavoured tonic, such as the case of Schweppes Pink Pepper.

Brief Description
Jacob Schweppe - a watchmaker and German chemist living in Switzerland - will forever be linked to the history of soft drinks. In the late eighteenth century, he produced carbonated mineral water artificially, now known as Soda. In the nineteenth century, with the company producing in the United Kingdom, the first lime soda with gas was created. The Schweppes tonic water was born shortly after in 1870, with the introduction of quinine on the recipe.
But adding artificial gas to the mineral water was only half the challenge. The problem was keeping it. The Schweppes bottle - now recovered - appears as the true stroke of genius: its round bottom meant that the bottles were always tumbled and thus the stopper remained moist. This ensured airtightness and maintenance of gas.
The Schweppes tonic water new range was launched in the twenty-first century, with the Pink Pepper became one of the flavored waters most implemented on the market.
The pink pepper flavor comes out ahead and the quinine and citrus component are not noticed on the nose. The flavor of pink pepper is also the first thing felt on the mouth but gives way to the citric taste of lemon-lime and to dry aftertaste of quinine. As for the gas, this is immediately noticeable when poured on a glass or drank. Carbonation is very present and lasts, maintaining the freshness of the Gin and Tonic from the first to the last sip.

Advice for use
Tonic water pink pepper aroma will intensify Gin giving it more spicy and lasting notes. Combine it with London Dry or fruity Gins.
