    What actually is a gin and tonic? 

    Gin Tonic is one of the best known and most popular long drinks. The drink has remained true to its simple recipe for over 100 years. Spirit and a fizzy filler - gin and tonic water . With the numerous gin and tonic water variants, a gin and tonic can vary in taste.

    Why drink a non-alcoholic gin and tonic?  

    There are many situations to toast.

But our non-alcoholic alternative is also the perfect solution for drivers and anyone who, for various reasons, avoids alcoholic beverages. 

    Is tonic water alcohol-free? 

    Tonic water is a quinine-containing lemonade with a bitter taste. Usually colorless and carbonated, tonic water originally consists only of sparkling water and quinine and is therefore alcohol -free. Quinine is a substance that occurs naturally in cinchona bark, which is used in small amounts as a bitter substance in the production of bitter drinks and is therefore a popular bitter maker in the food industry. 

    There are now many different types of tonic water. Often, various flavors, dyes, herbs and sugar are added to the original composition. This changes the taste of the tonic water.

    The quinine content also affects the taste. The more quinine the tonic water contains, the more bitter the taste. Due to the different flavors and variants of the tonic water, the taste of the gin and tonic also changes. As a result, the drink is always delicious and never boring. 

    Tonic water during pregnancy?  

    Due to the fact that only a small amount of quinine is used in the different types of tonic water, the consumption of the drink in small amounts is also safe for pregnant women . One or two glasses a day are not harmful or dangerous. 

    How are non-alcoholic gin alternatives made? 

    Alcohol-free gin alternatives are made in a similar way to conventional alcoholic gins. In the production of alcohol-free alternatives, real alcohol-based flavors and distillates are made from the botanicals , fruits or even vegetables, which are then distilled in multiple steps. These are then concentrated in a complex process so that they are still very flavorful when diluted and only have a very low alcohol content of <0.3%.
