  • Upgrade your cocktail hour with bubbly water from Fever-Tree, renowned for sourcing the highest quality quinine from the heart of the war-torn East Congo…

    With party girls in the know turning towards smooth-tasting spirits and choosing quality over quantity when it comes to their drinks, delicate little bottles of Fever-Tree tonic water are heading up every stylish drinker’s shopping list.

    Served in seven of Restaurant Magazine’s ‘world’s 10 best’ – even served as a frozen tonic soup course at Spain’s renowned El Bulli – the latest addition to Fever-Tree’s premium mixers range is their new Mediterranean Tonic Water – a unique blend of thyme and fresh citrus, with hints of rosemary.

    Premium vodkas marketed on their heritage, provenance and style have become a cult hit with taste-conscious drinkers. Sales have surged 40% in the last two years, according to market researchers Mintel. Even fashion designers have begun marketing vodka, once the preserve only of Russian and Swedish super-brands and supermarket discounters: Roberto Cavalli’s vodka sells his 70cl bottles for £47 a time.

    And now there’s a mixer that matches up to these high standards – along with icons such as Christian Louboutin, Apple, TAG Heuer and Xbox, Fever-Tree has made the CoolBrands list 2010/11 for the third consecutive year.

    As with all Fever-Tree’s luxey mixers – re-creations of classics such as Indian Tonic, Ginger Ale and Lemon Tonic – the new Mediterranean version has an intense flavour and completely natural ingredients, including the highest quality quinine sourced from the heart of war-torn East Congo.

    Available exclusively at Waitrose for the next six months (£2.99 for 4 x 200ml) – so make sure you stock up before the start of the party season!
