Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water launched in the UK in early 2005, the brand name chosen due to fever tree being the colloquial name for the cinchona tree in which quinine, a key ingredient for tonic, is found. The highest quality quinine was sourced from the Rwanda Congo border and blended with spring water and eight botanical flavours, including rare ingredients such as marigold extracts and a bitter orange from Tanzania. Crucially, no artificial sweeteners, preservatives or flavourings were added.


Our highly carbonated drinks, consist of small ‘champagne’ bubbles for a smooth, delicate texture that carries the flavour of the botanicals in each mixer and enhances the aromas of the spirits they are intended to be mixed with. Packaged in 200ml and 500ml glass bottles for either the perfect single serve or a larger sharing occasion. The glass packaging was designed to reflect the premium natural values of the brand and to ensure freshness and flavour.


At Fever-Tree, it’s all about taste. Which is why co-founders Charles and Tim have travelled to some of the most remote, beautiful, and sometimes dangerous, regions of the world to source the highest quality natural ingredients from small specialist suppliers. Quinine is the key ingredient, and the essential bitterness, in tonic water. The brand name Fever-Tree was chosen as it is the colloquial name for the cinchona tree, the bark of which produces quinine. After much research, a specific type of fever tree plantation (known as cinchona Ledgeriana) located on the Rwanda/Congo border, was found to be producing the purest quinine in the world. For Charles and Tim, there was no other option but to source Fever-Tree’s quinine from this plantation – the only drinks company to be doing so.
