A classic is often defined as “a work of art of recognised and established value”, and that’s exactly how we would describe Poacher’s Classic Tonic Water.
It all starts with our natural Irish spring water which brings an unrivalled smoothness to our drinks. Add to that a very light sprinkling of Irish thyme followed by a swift hit of quinine and our quintessential tonic is born. We like to keep the sugar content very low to allow the spirits it’s mixed with to really shine through.
The lower the sugar content the more you taste your gin. And as we say in Ireland, that’s classic!
Poacher’s Classic Tonic can be enjoyed on its own for an invigorating sweet bitter combination. The high level of natural quinine comes to the fore with the light touch of lemon and thyme botanicals.
For a refreshing, alcohol free serve, fill a highball with ice, pour in chilled Poacher’s Classic Tonic Water, garnish with a slice of lemon and a sprig of fresh thyme.
Our tonics are created to allow the taste of the gin to shine due to the lower levels of sugar compared to other premium mixers. Combine Poacher’s classic with Hendrick’s and taste the subtle combination of Rose and Cucumber. We often garnish with cucumber and red rose petals if you are looking to impress.
Fill a gin goblet with ice cubes, pour in 50ml Hendrick’s Gin and top up with chilled Poacher’s Classic Tonic Water. Garnish with a cucumber.
