BTW – Bermondsey Tonic Water

Our first featured tonic in the I Love Gin club will be BTW – joining Jensen’s Gins at the end of this month to create the very first I Love Gin subscription box!

Tonic-splash-GBWThe Story

At Bermondsey Tonic Water they love gin almost as much as us and they understand the huge significance of a decent gin and tonic! So they have created the perfect tonic designed to preserve and compliment distinct flavours in every gin.


Handmade in Bermondsey (just ’round the corner from the Jensen’s Gin Distillery, in fact!), to a Victorian recipe, using a range of all natural ingredients including quinine extracted from the bark of the South American cinchona tree, BTW carefully craft their tonic in super small batches of around 60 litres by soaking Cinchona bark in BTW syrup.



By truly allowing the Gin to shine, a BTW G&T is an experience like no other; delicious, daring & delectable.


We’re really excited to share BTW with you in our first ever kit featuring Jensen’s Bermondsey Dry and Old Tom Gins. Make sure you get one, by signing up now.

Any tonic left? 

For a soft drink, or to use up any leftover tonic, try squeezing lemon or lime straight into a glass of BTW. Add sugar to taste if too sour.
