The Gin & Tonic is the icon among long drinks. No wonder – we can prepare it quickly and still vary the taste in surprising ways. Countless varieties of gin are available – from classic gin with its well-known juniper note to enthralling botanicals. Hence our credo: We also provide variety with our tonics.. How about a Botanical Gin & Tonic with our Botanical Tonic? Or a Dry Gin & Tonic with our Dry Tonic? Or perhaps instead a Pink Ink with our Cherry Blossom Tonic? All of them open up new worlds of flavour for you. If you like things classic, reach for a Thomas Henry Tonic Water. Our premium all-rounder that harmonizes with all gins, cheers!

LONGDRINK? HIGHBALL? I KNOW!

So, you’ve invited guest over for some drinks, and are asking yourself whether you’d like to serve a Moscow Mule this time or perhaps rather a classic Gin & Tonic? Did you know that one is a long drink and the other is a highball? A long drink is a drink served on ice, most famously represented by the Gin & Tonic. In this case, the mixer is not poured over the drink but served next to it in a small bottle. You and your guests can then decide for yourselves how you’d like to enjoy your drink. And what about the garnish? Only an option here, it’s not a must! A highball, by contrast, is a drink like a Moscow Mule or a Dark & Stormy, which is served completely ready to drink – along with a garnish – with a predefined balance. Either way – Cheers!

THE LONG DRINK AS A SHORT STORY

Let’s keep things short: the history of the Gin & Tonic began in India in the early 19th century, where 260,000 soldiers protected the flourishing trade routes of the British Empire. Their worst enemy: malaria. That’s why resourceful physicians came up with a mix of quinine and soda water as a remedy. It was highly effective, but unfortunately unbearably bitter. Dose by dose, sip by sip, the soldiers optimized the taste of their medicine. First, sugar was added, then fresh limes, and finally, also lots of gin. Soon no more commands were needed. The classic amongst long drinks conquered the world.
