Double Dutch Mixers

A mixer should elevate the spirit, spurring the tastebuds to experience new and richer, deeper and more exciting flavours. It should reward the drinker with sensations that improve rather than diluting
their chosen drink – it should bring a spirit to life.

Tonic water, the classic pairing for gin, has a love/hate reputation. Our aim was to create a tonic water that rewarded the palate rather than shocking it, so we began by brightening the top of the quinine flavour with pink grapefruit and then we deepened the lower notes with a subtle hint of juniper berry to round out the angularity of quinine and lengthen the finish of the tonic, reducing the bitter after-taste to which many people object.

Just like our Indian tonic water, our slimline tonic is the ideal soft drink for those watching their weight – with 60% fewer calories than the classic variety, this zesty and rewarding low calorie soda is satisfying enough to drink alone but also rounds out the flavour of white spirits like gin and vodka superbly. With pink grapefruit bringing piquancy to the first taste and juniper berry balancing quinine’s crispness with a rounded aftertaste there’s nothing skinny about this slimline mixer.

CRANBERRY TONIC

There’s nothing aggressive about our Cranberry Tonic with Ginger, instead it’s a seductive mixer designed to pair the astringency of quinine with the perfectly balanced sweet’n’sour of cranberry, both warmly followed by ginger’s complex spiciness lingering lovingly on the palate. Blending a light summery aroma with a warm earthy finish, this new flavour was created in collaboration with Maison Hennessy Cognac to be the soul mate for all dark spirits!

WATERMELON AND CUCUMBER

While watermelon and cucumber are both part of the Cucurbitaceae plant family, watermelon’s natural sugars bring warmth and shine to the traditionally fresh savour of cucumber. While cucumber has a traditional affinity for gin and lighter summer fizzes the additional depth offered by watermelon allows our Cucumber & Watermelon mixer to stand alone or support light rums and other base spirits that require a little warmth to come to life.

POMEGRANATE AND BASIL

Often considered to be a superfood, pomegranate has a complex flavour profile that straddles sweet and tart but also offers a tannin note that brings body and structure to cocktails. Basil, in the anise family, has always been renowned for lifting acidic flavours such as tomatoes and in a soft drink its peppery top note is a superb counterbalance to pomegranate, delivering a complex, exotic mid-taste that supports rather than overwhelming a mixed drink.
