StrangeLove Light Tonic (at 2.9g/100ml of sugar), it is the driest on the market, a grown-up tonic for those who want the bitter twist without the overt sugary hit of traditional tonics.
You don’t want a mouthful of sugary lemonade passing itself off as tonic and wreaking havoc with your favourite gin. StrangeLove’s locally made Light Tonic has all the elements a perfect tonic should – superb bitterness, crisp mouthfeel, complex botanicals – without being overly sweet or in your face. In other words, it’s delicate enough to actually taste what’s happening in the gin.
‘Light’ doesn’t refer to the bitterness, just the level of sugar which weighs in at only 2.9 g/100ml. In all other respects it’s a full-flavoured tonic, just not as sweet as a regular example (which typically will be 5-8 grams or more). Apart from less time down the gym, less sugar means you are not hammering your top shelf gin with sugared-out tonic. As a result, StrangeLove’s Light Tonic is a flexible, light and dry way to showcase any good gin. With subtle and complex botanicals, it responds well to most garnishes.
The Full StrangeLove Tonic Range: developed over twelve months, these StrangeLove mixers offer an important addition to the G&T scene. First of all they are locally made from the finest Australian and imported ingredients, so we no longer have to rely on brands from the other side of the world for our quality, premium tonic. Secondly, inspired by the explosion of high quality craft spirits, these tonics were designed to ‘respect the gin’ first and foremost.
StrangeLove: StrangeLove was born in Byron Bay NSW where founders – James Bruce and Stafford Fox – developed a passion for organic produce and stumbled upon an old family recipe for a ginger elixir. They set about trying to put that recipe into a bottle utilising only organic ingredients. Before long, word of their delicious elixir had spread and StrangeLove ginger beer was all of a sudden being used by some of the nation’s most respected restaurants and bars. Pretty soon Bruce & Fox were being asked if they could offer other craft mixers. Strangelove was born.
Now made in Victoria from the finest Australian and imported ingredients, StrangeLove's tonics are super premium craft tonics, made for the bar trade and for all purveyors of top-shelf spirits. Needless to say, they offer a quality and flavour balance that the big guys cannot hope to match.
In addition to the tonic range, StrangeLove is Australia’s first and best organic craft mixer company, with a range of quality, authentic, eclectic flavours such as Smoked Cola, Bitter Grapefruit, Blood Orange & Chilli and Lemon Squash (OK, this last one doesn’t sound so original but trust us, it is!). The emphasis is on sourcing local, organic ingredients (if not biodynamic), and prioritising a high natural, organic fruit juice content over sugar. The sugar that is used is unrefined and organic. These are all deliciously dry and thirst quenching mixers, with a unique flavour profile. Great on their own, StrangeLove craft mixers come into their own in long drinks and cocktails.
