Franklin & Sons Elderflower with Cucumber Tonic - 20cl
Taking inspiration from historic London duo the Franklin Brothers, Franklin & Sons has been making an inspired range of premium mixers since its launch in 2016. While the brand’s namesake sold soft drinks out of their family’s confectioners store back in 1886, the modern iteration has a much, much bigger reach.
The modern-day Franklin & Sons may have better equipment to hand, but it has kept that Victorian-thinking when it comes to inventing flavours. The finest quality ingredients are sourced from across the globe, with each bottle carbonated to a beautifully ebullient point of perfection.
This is a gentle, light mixer, with elderflower providing a soft sweetness and cucumber adding a palate cleansing coolness. It works on a number of levels – try it with a floral gin like Pothecary or Jinzu to let the petals dominate, or try it with something fiery like Bertha’s Revenge to add a cooling note to the overall mix. It’s also worth trying with a vermouth for a nice, light mix.
