SUMMERHOUSE DRINKS has launched a new tonic water that combines quinine from cinchona bark with citric acid and combination of botanicals.
Walter Gregor’s is named for a Victorian minister that served the Aberdeenshire parish where Summerhouse Drinks is based, and is billed as “the first tonic water to be made in Scotland”. Gregor’s old garden, in the village of Pitsligo, is now being used to grow key botanicals for the new product.
Made from all natural ingredients, the new tonic water joins Summerhouse Drinks’ existing misty lemonade, Scottish raspberry lemonade, hint o’ mint and lavender lemonade lines. It is “a refreshing tonic” and “an ideal accompaniment for a gin”, the brand said.
Summerhouse Drinks managing director CLAIRE RENNIE said: “We’re so excited to have launched Scotland’s first ever tonic. There’s a renaissance of gin drinking in Scotland and indeed the rest of the UK and we look forward to offering a Scottish alternative to the tonics already available.”
