This non-traditional tonic combines the floral rose notes synonymous with it's home city and the traditional flavor that comes from pure Quinine and Cinchona bark. One of the few tonic concentrates that utilizes true Quinine in the recipe.
Portland's own House Spirits (now Westward Whiskey) approached us to create a tonic that paired with their award-winning Aviation gin. This authentically-brewed whole-ingredient tonic, made with genuine cinchona bark, features a delicate floral layer that supports but does not compete with Aviation's spice roster. Cinchona, the bittering bark from which tonics get their quinine, delivers a complex, gently astringent tonic “bite.” This makes the driest gin and tonic you'll find — simply stir it with a bit of sparkling water prior to building your drink.

Recipes & Uses
Use to flavor cocktails as you would a simple syrup, or flavoring syrup such as grenadine. Pairs with vodka or gin.
For sodas, our syrups are typically mixed in a ratio of 1:6 or 1:7 with chilled, sparkling water. This creates a traditional-strength soda in terms of flavor and sweetness.
