IT is the world’s first so-called premium tonic.
First launched in the UK in 2005 by London entrepreneurs Tim Warrillo and Charles Rolls, Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water is taking Spain by storm thanks to a current craze for gin and tonic.
It has even been championed by world famous Spanish chef Ferran Adria who concocted a sopa de Fever-Tree tonica comprised of a granita of bitter orange peel, rose petals and liquid nitrogen, that was on three Michelin-starred el Bulli’s menu until it closed last year.
The tonic, widely available across Spain, is more expensive than other brands but the duo insists it makes sense to have good quality tonic as it makes up to 75 per cent of the drink.
And it just goes to show, the Spanish may be taking the drink to the next level in terms of how they serve it, but the basics are still British.
