It is made by blending three iconic examples of English garden provender (rosemary, mint and cucumber) with natural Indian quinine. And in keeping with Folkington’s policy of sourcing locally, all the garden ingredients are grown in Britain.
Folkington’s English Garden tonic water is being launched in beautiful 200ml glass bottles alongside the Classic and Perfectly Light tonic waters that have been successfully launched in 150ml cans in early 2017 and are now widely available in travel lounges and premium retailers. It is Folkington’s first entry into the rapidly growing flavoured tonic water sector and is crafted to complement the quintessentially British character of the Gin & Tonic. And as with all Folkington’s tonic waters, they are designed to be as delicious on their own as they are as mixers.
Founder, Paul Bendit, comments: “History tells us that it was the British that created the gin & tonic so nothing was more tempting than to create the romantic notion of an ice-cold G & T blended with herbs and produce that are typical of an English garden. So our English Garden tonic water delivers the subtle, refreshing aromas and flavours that you’d expect to enjoy on a lazy English sunny day. And like all our tonic waters, it enhances rather than dominates the unique flavours of gin.”
The tonic range is available to licensed premises in cases of 24 200ml bottles.
In 2017 the Folkington’s brand has had a high profile year. Its drinks have been served at Royal Ascot, Wimbledon Tennis, Chelsea Flower Show and on-board British Airways flights. The brand is now sold throughout the UK, Europe and in the Middle East and South East Asia.
