Fever Tree Indian

Origin England
Type Neutral

Brief Description
Charles Rolls and Tim Warrilow are the founders of Fever Tree, a tonic which is still in its youth, at ten years old since its first bottling. Disappointed with what was on offer at the time, they started out on an adventure to create a new tonic made only from natural ingredients. Between days spent reading in the British Library, journeys to remote parts of Africa, and a final test of 5 recipes, they arrived at what, today, is considered the benchmark of tonic waters, Fever Tree. Fever Tree Indian can be bought in traditional 200ml tonic water bottles or in larger 500ml ones. On the label, on the neck and even the lid appears the fever tree from which tonic water’s essential ingredient, quinine, is derived.
Elegance is the word that sums up Fever Tree Indian. Elegance while it is served; transparent, smooth and with a fine, delicate bubble. Elegance on the nose with that difficult balance between the natural bitterness of quinine and the sweetness of the citrus fruits. Elegance in the mouth, with the warm notes of orange and grapefruit that give way to the drier taste of the quinine. Elegance in the carbonation which, while always present, is limited to a minimum, maybe because of this it is slightly sweet.

Advice for use
Versatility is its middle name. Fever Tree Indian is the ideal mixer for most Gins. Avoid only combining it with sweeter Gins.

Fever Tree Mediterranean

Origin England
Type Neutral

Brief Description
Fever Tree Mediterranean is, as the name tells us, a tonic inspired by the Mediterranean. The English company created this tonic with Vodka Tonic drinkers in mind but Fever Tree Mediterranean has found a life beyond Vodka and today is a reference in the world of the Gin and Tonic.
Having been created as a mixer for Vodka, Mediterranean is lighter in all aspects. It obviously has quinine mas less than usual which makes it a subtler ingredient. The citrus notes that punctuate almost all tonic waters is also less evident, top billing going instead to its more herbal side, with lemon thyme and rosemary under the spotlights.
It’s only in the carbonation that Fever Tree Mediterranean is the same as its sibling, Indian. With a fine bubble and controlled intensity, the carbonation remains for longer and makes Fever Tree Mediterranean one of the freshest and smoothest tonics on the market.
To go the name of the sea, Mediterranean’s label is blue.  On the neck, also with a blue background, the brand’s fever tree, as the Quina tree became known. Similarly to the Indian version, it’s available in 200ml and 500ml bottles.

Advice for use
Fever Tree Mediterranean is a versatile tonic, making for great results with the vast majority of Gins.

News
World Malaria Day

Tonic Water specifically made for the Gin and Tonic is a relatively recent thing when compared with its history of more than two centuries. The popular mixer was created when, in the fight against malaria, a more pleasant way of administering quinine was sought, something more pleasant than swallowing what was pretty much a bitter lump of earth. The solution came in adding other botanicals to flavour it, some sugar and some soda water, and that became what we know as Tonic Water. When you add the useful to the pleasant, i.e. Tonic to the Gin, success is guaranteed and today Gin and Tonic is one of the world’s favourite drinks.

It was in this historical vein that Fever Tree began a partnership with Malaria No More UK, with the unique aim of eradicating this disease.
These days, Malaria is a reality far from the European continent, but still a quotidian problem in unluckier places. The Democratic Republic of Congo, where Fever Tree collects its quinine, and Nigeria, where it sources its ginger, are just two examples.
On the 25th April of 2017 was the latest World Malaria Day and Fever Tree established the ambitious objective of mixing one million Gin and Tonics, donating 20p for each, in a worldwide donation of £200,000.
The donation will be delivered to Malaria No More UK, which is seeking not only the cure but also prevention for Malaria.
