Created by Bartenders during isolation to enjoy with their favourite gin or just as a straight refreshing tonic water. Just mix 20 ml of the Old Fashioned Tonic Syrup to a 200ml glass of any soda water you like to make yourself a rich Old Fashioned Tonic Water. Our Old Fashioned Tonic Syrup is made with quality botanicals including cinchona bark, lemongrass, lime, lemon and a hint of lemon myrtle leaf. It is made not by boiling, but by steeping the ingredients, this not only extracts the flavour but also keeps the nutritional benefits. Besides other benefits, The Cure Tonics have 30% less sugar than other market leading tonic waters.
Cinchona bark is one of the main ingredients in making of the tonic syrups. It contains quinine, which is historically used to prevent and treat the disease malaria as it's a natural anti-inflammatory. The bark is what gives the tonic its unique bitter flavour.
Lemongrass is a plant widely used for its citrus aroma and lemony flavour in teas and as food flavouring as it is exceptionally full of essential oils. Lemongrass contains a B-complex Vitamins and folate, which is needed to produce energy and red blood cells. It also contains substances that are thought to relieve pain and swelling, reduce fever, improve levels of sugar and cholesterol in the blood, stimulate the uterus and menstrual flow, have antioxidant properties and help prevent the growth of some bacteria and yeast.
Lemon Myrtle is an Australian shrub with soft green leaves, naturally occurring in the coastal areas of Northern New South Wales and Southern Queensland. Lemon Myrtle leaves are considered the “queen” of lemon herbs, as it has a strong lemon flavour with a delicate menthol essence and a fresh citrus aroma. Lemon Myrtle Leaf is the most concentrated source of plant citral (>90%), which has strong antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties. It’s also a great source of folate, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and lutein (a compound that plays an important role in eye health and wellbeing).
We recommend using 1 part syrup to 10 parts of soda water ratio, but if you prefer stronger tonics, feel free to change the ratio. One 500ml bottle will mix up to 5.5 litres of quality tonic water.
Ideal for use with water carbonation devices.
