The inspiration for Q-Tonic came to Jordan Silbert on a balmy summer night while drinking gin and tonics with friends in his Brooklyn, NY backyard. He wanted a superior tonic that would compliment and elevate premium liquors, not weigh them down like the fructose-laden, synthetic versions that were out there. A tonic that would enhance, but could also stand on its own.
He spent four years tracking down farmers in the Peruvian Andes and sourcing organic Agave nectar in the Mexican countryside for his tonic. After working side by side with food chemists and New York’s finest mixologists, the result is exactly what he was looking for.
Q-Tonic is clean and crisp, with just the right amount of sweetness and brisk sharpness. Made with natural quinine, a ground bark from “Quinquina” tree that grows on the slopes of the Andes, it’s the original ingredient used over 2 centuries ago that is believed to increase energy and improve health.
Q-Tonic is a healthier, better tasting and more authentic tonic water. There are only five ingredients in this natural product; the agave and quinine, plus natural bitters, lemon juice, and triple purified water. Plus it has 60% less calories that other tonics.
Featured in Esquire, Newsweek, New York Times and Food & Wine magazine and only served at the best bars in NYC, it’s available now at Di Bruno Bros.
Q-Tonic comes in both table size and individual bottles and is for sale now at our Rittenhouse location, and is coming to our Italian Market location tomorrow, just in time for your Gin & Q-Tonic’s this weekend!
