A good quality gin needs to be mixed with a premium tonic.
Thankfully, with the boom of quality gins, there has been a re-invention of the tonic. No longer an ice and a slice, today we have a great choice of flavoured tonics to bring out the best in the gin.
Double Dutch was founded by Dutch twin sisters, hence the name. Thave created revolutionary mixers to intensify enjoyment of spirits, or to be drunk solo.
This tonic water rewards the palate rather than shocking it, by brightening the top of the quinine flavour with pink grapefruit while deepening the lower notes with a subtle hint of juniper berries.
Just like our Indian tonic water, our skinny tonic is the ideal soft drink for those watching their weight.
With less sugar than a regular tonic, this zesty and rewarding low calorie tonic is satisfying enough to drink alone but also rounds out the flavour of white spirits like gin and vodka superbly. With pink grapefruit bringing piquancy to the first taste and juniper berry balancing quinine’s crispness with a rounded aftertaste there’s nothing skinny about this slimline mixer.
Subtle with a dry finish.
Same recipe as our Indian Tonic but with less added sugars. Slightly dryer aroma, also with a hint of juniper berry and grapefruit.
