Cherry Blossom Tonic: cherry blossoms year round
Thomas Henry Cherry Blossom Tonic is the world’s only tonic water that includes the floral notes of cherry blossom. Cherry blossoms bloom only once a year, this time of splendour is celebrated in Asian countries, particularly in Japan. Mountain landscapes, forests, and cities shine in a unique and colourful frenzy. The cherry blossom symbolises new life in Japan as well as, after a long cold winter, the awakening of nature in spring. At the same time they stand for transience and pure beauty.
New colour and aroma worlds for cocktails with Thomas Henry
Cherry Blossom Tonic combines centuries-old customs from the Far East with bartenders’ joy of experimentation.

The dry character of quinine, popular in the bar world, can be experienced anew when paired with cherry’s sweetness. Cherry Blossom Tonic fulfils the desire for a change in taste and offers a unique rush of colour. As beautiful as the annual sea of colours during cherry blossom season in Asia.
A perfect balance: wild cherry blossom and dry tonic characteristics
The bitter sweet character of Cherry Blossom Tonic perfectly harmonises with spirits such as gin, vodka, tequila, and rum. When mixed with vermouth, the elegant signature drink Bloomy Cup is created. Cherry Blossom Tonic offers plenty of creative space for innovative and colour accentuated drink creations. The fruity bitter character makes Cherry Blossom Tonic a versatile premium filler.
The balanced perlage and the subtle aromas of the wild cherry blossom are allowed to shine in bartender Ijya Berkovich’s composition, the Sakura Highball. In addition to gin, he includes maraschino and yuzu sake in this highball. A liquid, tasty interpretation of the impressively beautiful “Hanami”, the Japanese name for the annual cherry blossom festival.
