Q Tonic claims fewer calories
Published:  08 January, 2010

Distributor Park Place Drinks is bringing Q Tonic to the UK for the first time.

The tonic water hails from New York and is said to contain completely natural ingredients, including natural quinine from chinchona bark, hand-picked in the Peruvian Andes.

Because it’s sweetened with organic agave nectar, Park Place Drinks claims it contains up to 60% fewer calories than ordinary tonic water, which is often sweetened with saccharine and sugar syrup, and flavoured with synthetic quinine.

It will be available from selected specialist retailers at a price of £9.99 for four 18.7cl bottles.

At the end of last year Park Place Drinks launched SW4 London Dry Gin – a hand-crafted gin made in Clapham.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
