Double Dutch debuts Elderflower Tonic
Mixer producer Double Dutch has added an elderflower-flavoured tonic water to its portfolio.
Double Dutch’s Indian Tonic Water forms the base of the new Elderflower Tonic expression, which is described as a ‘versatile mixer’ that boasts delicate, lemony hints with a bitter finish.
Raissa de Haas, co-founder of Double Dutch, commented: “We have been observing a market demand for a lighter, more floral tonic. There is increasing interest in natural and botanical-based products, with more health-conscious consumers seeking beverages made with real, high-quality ingredients.
“A fresh Double Dutch Elderflower Tonic Water seemed the perfect way to hit this market demand, providing bartenders with an essential high quality floral mixer.”
The new expression is said to be soft and rounded with a uniquely fragrant, fresh and fruity finish, alongside an aroma of orchard sweetness.
It is recommended paired with floral gins, vodka, Prosecco or Champagne.
Elderflower Tonic joins Double Dutch’s extensive portfolio, which includes Cucumber & Watermelon, Pomegranate & Basil, and Cranberry & Ginger Tonic, as well as a premium Skinny Tonic Water, Ginger Ale and Ginger Beer.
The brand also has two cocktail sodas, Bloody Mary and Cucumber Margarita, and recently launched a Pink Grapefruit Soda.
Each of Double Dutch’s flavours have been created through the process of molecular gastronomy, said to result in ‘unique, counter-intuitive and delicious’ flavour combinations.
Double Dutch is the official tonic partner of members’ club Soho House.
The brand is also stocked at ‘mindful drinking hub’ Club Soda, where the first session of Double Dutch’s Female Bartending Scholarship Programme was held.
