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.

Tips & Tricks
Schweppes Original Tonic

Origin Switzerland (the first unit was built in England)
Type Neutral

Brief Description
You have to go back to the eighteenth century to tell the Schweppes tonic water story, or the tonic water as we know it. Jacob Schweppe was a jeweler and scientist by vocation. In 1783, he discovered how to produce carbonated water on a commercial scale. The tonic was born a century later - in 1870 - with the addition of higher carbon dioxide content - the brand signature that lingers to this day - and quinine.
The gas is still very present in the Schweppes Original Premium and throughout the remaining range, and appears in the form of large and lively bubbles. It is a tonic which balances harmoniously the sweet of sugar with the acidity and freshness of citric acid and bitter quinine, using only natural source ingredients. It is extremely fresh with lime notes. This freshness is transported to the Gin & Tonic, where Schweppes will always co-star and not merely supplement.
The Schweppes premium bottles recover the original shape of the brand with round bottom. This was ingeniously found to always maintain contact between water and stopper preventing the gas to be lost, as the bottles had never kept standing.

Advice for use
It is one of the most versatile tonic waters on the market but its liveliness (lots of freshness and gas) can overshadow softer Gin aromas.
