Fentimans Connoisseurs Tonic Water is a versatile tonic water that has been specially created with a delicate infusion of natural botanicals and quinine for a clean and balanced taste. The delicate flavour profile enhances and amplifies the beautiful botanicals of premium spirits, letting the spirit be the hero.
Fentimans, originally founded in 1905, and still owned by the same family, have been in the game of botanically brewed beverages for generations and over the past 18 months have been keeping up with the new sense of adventure that’s fizzed over in the mixer market due to the ever growing interest in gin's of all shapes and sizes.
To that end, Fentimans Connoisseurs Tonic Water is infused with a variety of carefully selected botanicals, including juniper berries, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass - Which combined with your favourite gin, will give the drink a unique character and depth of taste.
So, the idea is that this tonic water will complement and amplify the botanical flavours of premium gin - And for those who find their tonic water a little overpowering, this could be for you.
The infusion of natural botanicals and quinine allows for a clean and balanced taste that lets the spirit be the predominant flavour. For ‘connoisseurs’ this means a way to really make the flavours of your gin stand out.
However, Fentimans Connoisseurs Tonic Water is also of interest to a wider market.
That is because for those who don’t regard themselves as ‘gin connoisseurs’, this tonic water should actually make it easier to pair with the right gin and garnish due to it being such an easy going product that ensures the gin flavours are the ones that come to the fore.
In addition, there is a growing number of people that are seeking to discover premium mixers to drink with luxury spirits that accentuate and amplify the delicate botanical flavours found in artisanal and premium gin. The smooth taste profile of Fentimans Connoisseurs Tonic Water, through careful blending of clean, subtle and natural flavours achieves this objective.
It’s a tonic water that is a lot more approachable on its own and less drying on the finish, which is a testament to the flavouring team at Fentimans, who have managed to harness the same ingredients to a very different outcome just by tweaking the balance of the recipe.
In our opinion, the result makes for an easier tonic to pair up with gin in general and good to partner up with most brands - So whether your gin of choice is a classic like Bombay Sapphire, Hendrick's, Beefeater and Gordons, or one of the more recent additions to the gin revolution, such as The Botanist and Ungava etc., we believe that Fentimans Connoisseurs Tonic Water will be the perfect match to enhance your gin drinking experience.
