Hand crafted in the heart of London to a traditional Victorian recipe, BTW is an amber coloured, all-natural Tonic Water
The story of BTW begins in London Gin bar‘214 Bermondsey’. Nick Crispini, owner, set out to bring the widest array of Gins from the world’s best distilleries to the Capital. However, he & fellow gin lover Lawrence Mason found that the diversity of the Gins on offer was often being obscured by the overpowering taste of most commercial Tonics. So Nick & Lawrence decided to do something about it. The result is BTW; A smooth, crisp tasting mixer with none of the cloying bitter-sweetness of other tonics.
Quality Spirits are made using raw & natural ingredients
So should your soft drinks
The key difference with BTW is that Quinine is extracted straight from South American Cinchona bark using heat & water. In contrast other tonic makers use extracts. The bark is bleached , leaving the characteristic clear mixer people have become used to.
The BTW process of soaking the bark in small batches to extract the Quinine may take a little longer but it's well worth the wait. Not only does it avoid all those unnatural nasties but also produces a well balanced, clean & crisp flavour.
BTW has no other botanicals added; this prevents your palette becoming confused. Any spirit you choose to mix with BTW becomes the star of the show!
With a G&BTW you are enjoying a stimulating celebration of the true Gin spirit …the way gin intended...
