As bitter as lemon can be
You’ll find our Bitter Lemon less sweet than others. With just the right amount of quinine, it perfectly balances bitterness, acidity and sweetness. Mildly spicy and all-natural citrus flavours burst out onto your taste buds. It’s a stylish choice and one for the purists. The perfect fit for vodka, gin and other clear spirits.
Just like tonic water, bitter lemon originated as a mix of water, lemon and quinine in colonial Africa during the 19th century as a protection against malaria. Not only did it prevent fever, it was surprisingly refreshing as well. Bitter, citrus and sweet: this is Thomas Henry Bitter Lemon.
