El Guapo Tonic Syrup 250ml
Country of origin: USA Alcohol content: 0% Alcohol by Volume
El Guapo's hand made tonic syrup, made with cinchona bark (quinine), cane sugar, lime, lemons, grapefruit, oranges, ginger, cardamom and lemongrass.
This tonic syrup was crafted after much research on classic tonic recipes—from a time when tonic was imbibed for more than just its flavour.
Original tonics were created using cinchona bark (for its source of quinine). It's purpose? To prevent malaria! The trouble was that quinine is extremely bitter. With that in mind, sugar was added for sweetness and citrus was added for tartness. Other herbs and spices made it into various recipes.
El Guapo's tonic syrup boasts of bright citrus and slightly floral flavours with a lingering but pleasant bitterness.
To make tonic water simply add 15ml of Tonic Syrup to 45ml carbonated or sparkling mineral water.
Pairing Suggestion: Archie Rose Signature Dry, Distillery Botanica, Poor Toms Fool Strength Gin, or Beefeater.
Refrigerate after opening.
