Bitter Lemon

The Extra Fresh Classic

Lots of things are famous, but only some become classics – like our Bitter Lemon. It's understandable why sophisticated bartenders love to mix with it. And not only for an iconic Vodka Lemon. The secret lies in its unique balance between bitterness, acidity and sweetness. The especially high quinine content and the use purely natural ingredients does certainly also play their part. A pleasure for now. And forever. And always.

Without our Bitter Lemon, a classic Vodka Lemon is unimaginable. Though this premium mixer does also harmonise just as well with other clear spirits and liqueurs. Cheers!

Conquering the World in a Glass

What a story. After starting as hard medicine against malaria, bitter lemon became a pleasantly refreshing all-time classic in the bar world. People began mixing water with lemon juice and quinine over 100 years ago in colonial Africa for protection against malaria. The result was a drink that protected against illness and was pleasantly refreshing at the same time. Some people called it bitter lemon, others lemon tonic, and again others dry lemon. But no matter what they called it, the bitter lemon was a hit all round the world.

A Great Past and a Great Future

Time passed and bitter lemon stuck around. Thanks to its outstanding mixing quality, it became a popular “soft drink for adults”. It was mixed with gin, sloe gin and whiskey as well as with vodka and many other spirits. Featured in a Vodka Lemon it ascended to world fame and became part of the disco boom of the 1970s. Drinks with bitter lemon shimmered in the UV light of popular clubs in a magical way. And, fortunately, they continue to shine! But nowadays in top bars. For example as an Amalfi, with 40 ml Campari, a slice of lime, and Thomas Henry Bitter Lemon. Cheers!
