Pinckney Bend Tonic Syrup is unique. It is fresher, bolder and more complex than commercial tonic water. It is also the only tonic syrup on the planet developed specifically to harmonize with the flavor profile of a companion gin. It mixes well with any high quality gin, but it’s outstanding with Pinckney Bend American Gin.
The gin & tonic cocktail became a popular drink late in the 19th century as a way to make the daily dose of bitter quinine powder more palatable. Quinine powder is the only known prophylaxis for malaria symptoms. Barkeeps in British officer’s clubs from Cairo to Rangoon had their own recipe, and it became known generically as ‘tonic’. Pinckney Bend Classic Tonic Syrup reaches back in time to connect with these historic roots.
