how it all began
HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT GIN & TONIC
Fever-Tree began in 2003 with a meeting of minds and one simple premise: if three quarters of your G&T is the tonic, wouldn’t you want it to be the best?
REIGNITING A LONG-FORGOTTEN AND NEGLECTED SECTOR OF THE DRINKS INDUSTRY
Co-founders Charles and Tim, working in different parts of the drinks business, had both spotted that premium spirits were growing quickly, fuelled by consumers’ increasing awareness of the provenance of what they ate and drank.
From the very beginning, Charles and Tim approached their business differently - there would be no compromise at Fever-Tree.
Charles and Tim set out to put quality back into mixers
Flavour and quality were of the utmost importance. This mindset led them on an eighteen-month adventure from the archives of the British Library and concluded with the launch of our Premium Tonic Water in 2005, with the belief it still operates by today – if ¾ of your drink is the mixer, mix with the best. Since we put the lid on their first bottle, we haven’t wavered in their single-minded mission to bring quality, flavour, and choice back to mixers.
Innovation remains at the heart of Fever-Tree, and they've developed a range of mixers that perfectly complement the world’s top spirits.
PIONEERING TO PRODUCE AN UNRIVALLED DRINKING EXPERIENCE AT EVERY OCCASION
