Guide Review - Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water
The tonic is fabulous on its own and it's the first that I've found that I will drink alone, so you can imagine that a Vodka Tonic is the same and really shows off the water's flavors in the purest form. However, Gin & Tonic lover that I am, this is where the real test lies for me - does it play well with the botanicals of premium gins? Emphatically, yes!
I was able to compare Fever-Tree with 3 different gins: Beefeater, Martin Miller and Tanqueray. The differences between the three mixed drinks was astounding and in each the tonic took on an entirely different character. My favorite was Martin Miller because it was light and airy with citrus notes and a sweet-bitter, almost syrup feel. Beefeater produced a warmer, darker and drier drink filled with botanicals. Tanqueray fell in the middle. This G&T was warm and had a subtle citrus and the tonic really brought out the gin's juniper.
