Long before quinine was used in the formulation of tonic waters, the Chinese revered the bitter flavor of botanicals like Gentian for herbal tonics. While the days of medicinal tonic elixers have long since past, the bitter flavor of the tonic water has remained in the hearts of cocktail enthusiasts.
Five by Five Tonic Syrup uses Gentian Root along with the mildly floral Saas Hops to create the first tonic syrup of it's kind. Its mildly bitter and aromatic taste pairs perfectly with modern artisan gin and lends versatility to classic cocktails like the Gin and Tonic. All of the botanicals used, both in the Tonic and the Bitters, are chosen from the highest quality sources and is prepared entirely by hand in small batches.
