Origins of tonic
Tonic’s distinctive bitter flavour comes from quinine, which is derived from the bark of the cinchona tree. This originates in the Peruvian Andes and has been used as a malaria cure for years. Legend has it that a South American Indian, suffering from malaria, drank water from a pool that had been “contaminated” by the cinchona tree and, remarkably, discovered that his fever was gone.
The United Kingdom
Raised in the Netherlands, Double Dutch’s twin founders, Joyce and Raissa, have a natural affinity with superlative drinks and excellent blendings. After all, they come from the birthplace of gin! But their love affair turned to frustration. While the world’s choice of spirits has continued to grow, mixers and sodas have remained bland … less of a twin, more of a shadow.
Whether you like it on the rocks, with a twist of lemon, garnished with an olive or all/none of the above, the Martini belongs to a select group of undisputed classics.
