Tonic Water Making Kit Frequently Asked Questions

My tonic water tastes too sweet/too bitter!

It can take some practice to make the perfect bottle of tonic water. If your tonic water is too sweet, try adding more soda water.

If it is too bitter, adding some sugar syrup and soda water should fix it. On your next batch, you can reduce the amount of gentian root and cinchona bark slightly.

My tonic water is yellow!

That is perfectly normal! Most commercially-made tonic waters use ingredients extracts and artificial flavourings which allow them to keep the colour clear. Because our tonic water is made from infusing the ingredients in their natural form, the liquid can take on their colour. In this case, the yellow comes from the lemon peel we use.
