El Guapo Tonic Syrup 251ml
Country of origin: USA Alcohol content: 0 % Alcohol by Volume
El Guapo's old-world tonic syrup, made with cinchona bark ground in-house, cane sugar, lime, lemons, grapefruit, oranges, ginger, cardamom, and lemongrass. The tonic boasts of bright citrus and slightly floral flavours with a lingering but pleasant bitterness.
This tonic syrup was crafted after much research on historical tonic recipes. Original tonics were created as an anti-malarial using cinchona bark for its quinine. The trouble was that quinine is extremely bitter. Sugar was added for sweetness and citrus was added for tartness to temper the bitterness. Other herbs and spices made it into various recipes, and it was eventually combined with gin for leisurley drinking.
To make tonic water simply add 15ml of tonic syrup to 45ml sparkling water.
Pairing Suggestion: Archie Rose Signature Dry, Distillery Botanica, Poor Toms Fool Strength Gin, or Beefeater.
Refrigerate after opening.
