East Imperial Limited
Old World Tonic
translation missing: en.products.bold_price
As was the case with original Indian tonic water, East Imperial is now the only tonic water sourcing all the key ingredients from Asia. This is the champagne of tonic waters. This is not a soft drink. This is a true tonic water and as such we would recommend pairing it with the more bold herbaceous new western style gins. You’ll soon understand why, as the subtle flavours of the gin once masked by other tonics will start to shine through.
Because there is only a trace of natural citric acid and less than half the sugar of Schweppes or Fever Tree, bartenders are free to craft their perfect G&T the way they want, adding natural citrus flavours or sweeteners to suit. This really is the authentic representation of what tonic water tasted like at the turn of the century.
We recommend pairing Old World Tonic with: Aviation Gin, Beefeater 24, Blush Rhubarb Gin, Citadelle No. 1 No Mistake Old Tom Gin, Four Pillars X Herno Dry Gin, Gin Mare, GVine, Kinobi Gin, Malfy Limone, Manly Spirits Coastal Citrus Gin, St George Terrior, Tanqueray 10, The Botanist, Windspiel Gin, Ried+Ried Native.
