We feel left out because our relatives never made tonic water, but they sure as heck drank lots of gin and tonics. What makes tonic taste like tonic? Quinine. Quinine is a very distinctive alkaloid that primarily comes from the bark of the Cinchona tree, and the taste? It tastes like tonic water. We tried to make a tonic syrup that tastes like the great tonic waters of Europe using cinchona bark instead of pure quinine. However, after months of experimenting, we couldn't pull it off. Trying to figure out why the tonic syrup tasted muddy and overly astringent, we learned that quinine isn't water soluble. You can boil cinchona bark for a month and all you'll have is hot wet cinchona bark. Oh, and tannins. Lots and lots of tannins. That's what tastes so astringent. The nice thing is that quinine is alcohol soluble (it's also soluble in formaldehyde, but who would ever want to drink that?). So, in 2011 we launched a tonic liqueur. Though it's great, people kept on asking for a non-alcoholic version... so we went back to the drawing board. After a long and exhaustive search, we found a producer of all natural quinine extract. Now we could tackle that tonic syrup! That's our story. At Speed Craft, we think that our blend of citrus, sugar and natural quinine beats a manufactured marketing story any day. How to use: Mix one part of our tonic syrup to five parts soda water for a classic off-dry tonic water. Ingredients: Filtered water; sugar; clarified concentrated lemon, lime, grapefruit and tangerine juices; Natural Acid Blend (citric and malic); lemon and lime oil; gomme (gum arabic) and natural quinine extract About Speed Craft: Speed Craft was created by our friends Avery & Janet Glasser, the Bittermens founders. When they first founded Bittermens in 2007, their vision was to make a range of cocktail bitters and other products to help bartenders create the next generation of modern classic cocktails. Their guiding rule for Bittermens was to create products that were useful, focusing on new flavor profiles and only tackling the classics when they felt that there was no other good solution available. In 2014, one of their distributors went to them asking them to recommend a brand of affordable, all natural classic cocktail syrups. They weren't asking for proprietary flavors, but for classic flavors like grenadine and lime cordial. It turns out that the distributor wasn't getting requests for these products from the top end bars in their territory. Instead, it was restaurants and neighborhood bars; folks that had been using grenadine and lime cordial made with artificial flavors, colors and preservatives. They needed something with these familiar flavors, at an affordable price, that would allow these bars to elevate their offerings without having to significantly change their recipes or reduce their margins. Suffice to say Avery & Janet racked their brains looking for affordable, all natural and most importantly syrups that tasted right. They couldn't name one, and decided, even though it wasn't their business at the time, that there was a gap in the market that needed to be filled, and so Speed Craft was born.
