Fentimans Connoisseurs Tonic - 12.5cl

With the exact same botanical line up (juniper, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass) added to cinchona bark as the Premium Tonic, the difference here is a notably softer nose to the tonic (less acerbic and with a fuller, more rounded citrus). It’s a lot more approachable on its own and less drying on the finish, which is a testament to the flavouring team, who’ve managed to harness the same ingredients to a very different outcome just by tweaking the balance of the recipe.
In our opinion, the result makes for an easier tonic to pair up with gin in general compared to their flagship Premium Dry. Perhaps ironically given the name, it requires less connoisseurship to pair up perfectly with the right garnish too, as many are allowed the chance to shine with this mixer. Consider this the neutral middle in the Fentiman’s range and good to partner up with most brands.
