The Botanical Gin & Tonic is the perfect drink for everyone who loves modern floral gins and likes to enjoy drinks with reduced bitterness. Our Botanical Tonic as a mixer guarantees just that sort of contemporary pleasure. In it, Mediterranean and local aromas come together and perfectly accentuate the notes of rosemary, juniper, laurel, and tarragon as well as blackthorn, elderflower, and spruce needles. So give your Gin & Tonic a botanical note of herbs and fruits and allow the aromas of the gin enough space to unfold their taste at the same time. You can also use our premium mixer for your aperitifs or mix it with non-alcoholic gins, cheers!

BECAUSE TASTES DIFFER

So that your Gin & Tonic is always perfectly mixed, you should keep a couple of simple but important rules in mind. Depending on your preference, a drink-to-mixer ratio between 1:1 and 1:4 is recommended. Normally – but then what’s really normal – 40 to 60 ml of gin are poured into a glass that’s already filled with ice. As it should be for a highball, the mixer is always served in a small bottle along with the drink. That means that you and your guests can decide for yourselves how dominant the original taste of the gin should be or how intensively it should be supplemented by the tonic. But keep in mind: always serve it well-chilled. Cheers!

A GLASS IS MORE THAN JUST A GLASS

You’ve surely already noticed that your Gin & Tonic is served in a different glass depending on the bar or country. There are many reasons for this. A highball glass, for instance, has a very important functional advantage: the small surface of the drink keeps the carbonic acid in the drink for the longest period of time. In Spain, your Gin & Tonic is usually served in a copa glass. While it isn’t as good at preventing the carbonic acid from escaping, it does enable the aromas to unfold more optimally and leaves more room for individual garnishes. If you prefer a 1:1 ratio of tonic and gin, then use a tumbler glass. And by the way, no matter which glass is used, a stirrer should always be provided along with the drink!
