Q Tonic claims fewer calories
Published:  08 January, 2010

Distributor Park Place Drinks is bringing Q Tonic to the UK for the first time.

The tonic water hails from New York and is said to contain completely natural ingredients, including natural quinine from chinchona bark, hand-picked in the Peruvian Andes.

Because it’s sweetened with organic agave nectar, Park Place Drinks claims it contains up to 60% fewer calories than ordinary tonic water, which is often sweetened with saccharine and sugar syrup, and flavoured with synthetic quinine.

It will be available from selected specialist retailers at a price of £9.99 for four 18.7cl bottles.

At the end of last year Park Place Drinks launched SW4 London Dry Gin – a hand-crafted gin made in Clapham.
