The newest addition to the Fever-Tree tonic range is the 'Aromatic Tonic Water,' which takes inspiration from a 19th century recipe that was once used by the Royal Navy. The tonic water is made with angostura bark extract that's sourced from South America, as well as quinine, a classic tonic water ingredient with a distinctive bitter flavor. The addition of this bark ingredient gives the water a light pink tint, which is ideal for making a pink gin and tonic beverage.

In terms of flavor, the Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic Water is said to have a sweet and spicy taste from cardamom, pimento berry and ginger.

This drink was previously introduced at Fever-Tree’s World Gin Day pop-up in London, which played up some of the roles in medicine that tonic water used to play in the past.
