Not a typical tonic, No. 5 is made with lime and lemon juices, cane sugar, along with cinchona bark, the source of quinine for tonic.

Fresh grapefruit is peeled and torched to extract bitter yet refreshing citrus notes.

Just a hint of local Bulls Bay Saltworks sea salt brings out savory caramel notes and rounds out the flavors.

Works well with white spirits. Top with soda water.

Refrigerate after opening.

Contains quinine.

Marmalade in a tonic

By: on 8 January 2016
I love this one and keep coming back for more - it's like grapefruit marmalade that's been taken just to the edge as it's cooked. Not too sweet. I drink it with soda mostly, sometimes add gin.

Grapefruit! Really!

Lovely, lingering salty aftertaste to this syrup. Mid-range bitterness, but impressively complex flavours; fabulously refreshing with or without booze. Great value at this price too.

Perfectly balanced

My first bottle of this disappeared far too quickly… I've used it in G&T, but I actually love it just on its own with soda. A perfect balance of sweet and bitter.
