Refreshingly Light Indian Tonic Water

We use naturally occurring fruit sugars to develop our lighter tonic water. The blending of subtle botanical flavours with spring water and highest-quality quinine gives it the distinctively clean, crisp character of Premium Indian Tonic Water, but with 46% fewer calories.

Taste

Our Refreshingly Light Indian Tonic Water uses a handful of different botanicals, including our distinctive natural quinine and oils from Mexican Bitter Oranges, to give a uniquely clean and refreshing taste and aroma.

Key Ingredients

The story of Fever-Tree is one of a pursuit for the best. In 2004, unhappy with the poor state of spirit mixers, founders Tim and Charles began trawling through history books and poring over maps to find sources of the very best ingredients, eventually travelling to the ends of the earth to get hold of them. Our Indian Tonic Water still uses natural quinine from the deep forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo, found by Tim and Charles on one of their first trips. Our Refreshingly Light Indian Tonic Water uses naturally sourced fruit sugar to provide the traditional sweet balance to the bitterness of the quinine. 

Quinine

Cinchona ledgeriana

Democratic Republic of Congo

Quinine is the key ingredient that creates the gentle bitterness in tonic water. Our name was chosen as it is the colloquial name for the cinchona tree, the bark of which produces quinine. After discovering early 17th century references in the British library, Charles and Tim located the only remaining plantation of original Cinchona Ledgeriana trees (known locally as ‘fever trees’) which produce some of the highest quality quinine in the world, located in the Democratic Republic of Congo. For Charles and Tim, there was no other option but to source Fever-Tree’s quinine from this area.

Bitter Orange

Citrus aurantium

Mexico

The bitter orange oils in our range of tonic waters come from a co-operative of small specialist citrus farmers in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. The bitter oranges are grown using Ancient Mayan farming techniques, which revolve around the lunar cycle. The sap is at its highest during the new moon, and farmers await this single day to graft young orange plants on to existing rootstock, creating bountiful new trees. Then it’s another three years before they bear the fruit from which we extract the finest orange oils.
