New mixer brand Love Tonic has launched in the UK with a quinine-free tonic water suitable for blending with gin, vodka, tequila, whisky or rum.According to the brand, the beverage has been developed “to help uncover the true flavour of the spirit it is mixed with”.Created by Don Lawson and Gary Morren, who saw a gap in the market for a different type of tonic water to offer more choice to consumers, Love Tonic has been trialled extensively in the Scottish Highlands.
“Whether you drink it with your favourite spirit or as a long drink with ice, people love it,” said Love Tonic director, Don Lawson.“The fact that Love Tonic is quinine-free is, we believe, another advantage. Quinine puts a lot of people off tonic and we know from a lot of craft gin distillers that some tonics dull the flavours of the unique botanicals. Love Tonic does the opposite. We believe Love Tonic offers a versatility not often found in tonic waters. Whether it’s with gin, vodka, whisky, tequila or rum, you’ll be surprised at the different flavours that are brought out in a variety of spirts – even ones you do not think you like.”
