Tonic, also known as tonic water or even aguaquine for some South American countries, is a carbonated soda made from quinine that aromatizes it. Because of this alkaloid from the bark of trees, tonic has some digestive and analgesic properties mainly.

Origin of the tonic

In 1783 in Geneva, Johann Jacob Schweppe, a German watchmaker, invented the first carbonated water. It was initially marketed as a product with healing properties against stomach sick and some others.

During the 19th century, British troops were in India and Africa as an occupying force to fight malaria among other missions.

At the time, an Englishman, William Cunnington, an antiquarian and archaeologist, came up with the idea of trying to add quinine to the soda consumed by troops thinking that the healing properties of the troop could protect them from malaria or malaria, ill endemic to those lands.

This innovation gave rise to what we now know as tonic, a drink that has achieved such popularity that it is currently marketed under many brands, styles and flavors.

According to these styles and flavors and depending on the exclusivity of its formula give rise to the so-called premium tonics.

Here’s a guide to the best premium tonics to make a gin and tonic or drink along with a simple slice of lemon.

Types of tonic

One of the most commonly accepted tonic classifications within the world of mixology is as follows:

  • Classic. They are the most bitter and carbonated, such as the Schweppes Original, Nordic Mist or Fentimans.
  • Modern.With less bitterness and less gas, such as Boyland.
  • Aromatized.They are especially suitable to enhance the gins that complement it in Gin Tonica. They feature additional botanicals such as cardamom, ginger, pink pepper or orange blossom.

Tonic ingredients

Initially this drink was composed of carbonated water and quinine, hence the intense bitter taste that it had in its beginnings.

Over time it was added to the formula sugar and citric acid that sweetened the solution a little more in addition to reducing the amount of quinine that was included to avoid side effects that it sometimes produced.

Today in this varied market we can find sugar-free tonics and tonics flavored with lime or lemon.

Tonic Curiosities

Apart from the standard versions of the drink, sugar-free or lemon-flavoured (bitter lemon) or lime (bitter lime) versions are also sold. Recently other aromas have been added such as Yuzu, delicately aromatic citrus of Japanese origin, under the brand name QYUZU.
