Although the fast-paced development of the gin industry has surged the demand for innovative spirits and mixers other than their classic alternatives, sometimes a gin lover desires a good ol’ classic – with a potential wee twist such as flavoured tonic water.
And we all know that the tonic water can have as much of an impact on our G&T as the spirit itself, hence why we want to make our choice carefully.
London Essence Company mixers are inspired by tradition but designed for creativity, with balanced flavour profiles that add range and variety to the bartender’s armoury.
The citrus burst of this refreshingly light tonic is created by blending the fresh zing of a pomelo extract with cold pressed grapefruit oils.
To this they add the gentle spice of their distilled pink peppercorn essence, created by gently heating the pink peppercorns in water to release the aromatic oils.
As with the rest of the collection of London Essence Co, this tonic is light and low in calories, with just a dusting of sugar. The perfect way to enliven citrus forward gins for an added pink lift.
This mixer has a fresh citrus aroma with a subtle hint of spice.
To taste you get a refreshing combination of tangy grapefruit notes, a delicately spiced pepper note and a sharp citrus and lightly bitter quinine finish.
If you’d like to grace your G&T with his tonic water you will find it on Amazon Fresh, Harvey Nichols, Waitrose and Ocado.
