BTW: Bermondsey Tonic Water

Bermondsey Tonic Water is the most exciting thing to happen to the world of G&T's since this whole gin craze took off!

Whilst modern gin fans take huge pride in their array of gins, the guys at Bermondsey Tonic Water have directed their attention to the other two-thirds of the G&T - the tonic water!

Based on a Victorian recipe, BTW is the only tonic water we know of that is made by soaking actual Cinchona Bark in pure water to naturally release the quinine (the ingredient that gives tonic water its distinctive flavour).  All that's added to this hand-made preparation is sugar and citric acid.   This undiluted syrup is left part filtered which, when lengthened with soda, provides a beautiful sunset golden hue.

Contrast this to most commercially available tonic water (including the ‘premium' brands') that use quinine extracts and essences, as well as a host of other ingredients and it's easy to see why we love BTW so much.

The result is the purest, most balanced tonic water to complement your preferred choice of gin.

To use, simply pour around 25ml of BTW per 50ml of gin and top with your desired amount of soda.

Available for £14.95 (at least 20 servings/bottle):
