Proudly 100% New Zealand made, at East Imperial, tradition and quality are of the utmost importance. All of their products are made using only the purest ingredients sustainably sourced from Asia and Africa, the home of the original tonic water.
Inspired by a family recipe from 1903, they have tracked down the source of the original, hand picked ingredients to create the ultimate complement to premium spirits. They believe the spirit should do the talking.
Their traditional small batch method of production enhances the freshness and subtleties of any spirit’s botanicals, creating a range of ultra-premium mixers that stand out from the crowd of the overly sweet soft drinks on the market.
All tonics are low in sugar and there are never any artificial flavours, sweeteners, preservatives or colours added.
The Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew in London played an important role in the story of quinine, transporting cinchona tree seedlings from South America to India. This use of this vital medicinal plant eventually led to the greatest cocktail of all time, the humble G & T.
East Imperial have created this unique tonic water to introduce a subtle brightness to your glass with the refreshing notes of elderflower, combined with the tart taste of ruby red grapefruit and bitterness of sustainably sourced quinine from the highlands of Batavia in Java.
