Sin-ko-nah Tonic Syrup - Australian
sin-ko-nah tonic syrup: a bittersweet mixer for the discerning drinker
Following a recipe formulated in the 1820s, the syrup is infused with cinchona bark - the natural source of quinine - imparting a uniquely bitter flavour and distinctive colour. Tonic syrup was originally concocted by officers serving in British India to ease fever and ward off malaria. Mixed with soda and gin, this highball cocktail became an icon of the colonial Empire.
sin-kō-nah tonic syrup returns this refreshing tipple to authenticity, curing thirst and enlivening cocktails - alcoholic & non-alcoholic alike.
Infused with cinchona bark, our tonic syrup is a bittersweet mixer. For a fabulous take on the classic gin and tonic, dilute sin-ko-nah tonic syrup with sparkling water, add a shot or two of gin, plenty of ice and a slice of lime. -- sinkonah.com

When Stephen the Founder of UK based Pinkster Ginrealised raspberry delivers a pack of flavour and added it to his concoction of gin his pals encouraged him to go commercial! G&T, one of the UK’s oldest distillers, was recruited to the cause. They produce the core spirit with five botanicals to add to Pinksters original recipe which was painstakingly developed over several years.
We then macerate with a further three botanicals, including fresh, plump raspberries grown nearby our rural base outside Cambridge, to produce the finished gin that is Pinkster.
Over the intervening years, thirst for Pinkster has grown and from humble beginnings we’re now proud to be stocked by the likes of Majestic Wine, Marks and Spencer, Harvey Nichols, and Selfridges as well as dozens of farm shops and food halls across the country. Stephen still personally oversees the production, ensuring consistency from batch to batch of fresh fruit.
