This is the champagne of tonic waters and makes a great pairing with bold herbaceous new western style gins.
With a history stretching back almost 200 years, to the early 1800s and the British Raj in India, a mixture of quinine, sugar and water was concocted as a daily tonic to prevent malaria. The addition of gin, to, among other things, mask the bitter taste of the quinine, was among the Empire’s greatest inventions.
East Imperial was founded on the belief that the heritage and tradition inherent in a classic G&T had been all but lost, with modern tonic water doing nothing for the herbaceous aromas of premium gin, a mixologist’s skills or the drinker’s taste buds.
