Gin & Fever Tree Pop Up, Shoreditch
Long gone are the days where the only choice of tonic water was Schweppes or Diet Schweppes. As our gin palettes have become more refined, the people demanded more from their tonic as some were far too powerful for the subtler boutique juniper spirits being released onto the market around the early 2000s.
It was out of this need that Fever Tree tonic water was born. Created by Charles Rolls (former lead at Plymouth Gin) and Tim Warrillow, Fever Tree was launched in 2005 after a painstaking 15 month R&D project which involved discovering the best quinine around (the key ingredient in tonic water) and 5 changes to the recipe until they were happy with the end product.
The result of all this endeavour is that today, Fever Tree is arguably the ‘go to’ tonic water in many of the best bars on the planet and to showcase their talents, they have set up a gin and tonic bar on Hoxton Square in Shoreditch. The bar on the former site belonging to Moniker’s is open for only 6 short weeks and will display a whopping 160 gins, and the full range of Fever Tree tonics and mixers. There will also be masterclass opportunities, dining experiences and G&Tree tasting flights.
Throughout the venue you’ll find Fever Tree related artwork including one with the motto “If 3/4 of your Gin & Tonic is the tonic, make sure you use the best”. We couldn’t agree more.
Fever Tree G&T Pop Up, 16 Hoxton Square, N1 6NT. Open Wed-Fri 4pm-12am, Sat 12pm-12am, and Sun 12pm-11pm. Closes on Sunday 27th July.Share This Post
