1724 Tonic Water - 4x20cl
Chilean tonic water with cinchona bark from a height of 1724 meters.
This coveted tonic water from the Inca Trail, which contains hand-picked cinchona bark, is neither too bitter nor too sweet.
The Chilean 1724 Tonic Water is top quality! Hand-picked Peruvian cinchona bark and very pure Patagonian water form the basis for a balanced aroma and a pleasant balance between sweetness and acidity. This tonic water is not only used when making a typical gin and tonic: According to the 1724 founders, the quinine-containing refreshing drink can also be mixed with vodka, cachaca or a premium aperitif. In this case, 1724 does not represent a significant date in the company's history, but an altitude.
The cinchona bark, which was used for the 1724 tonic water, is picked in the Andes at an altitude of 1,724 meters. This is where the chinchona plant genus was first discovered in the 17th century. However, the indigenous peoples made use of the bitter substance long before that.
Anyone who was responsible for the honorable task of sourcing raw materials for this 1724 tonic water moved up and down the well-known Inca Trail, which goes through Peru to Macchu Picchu. As legendary and mystical as the brand imagines itself, it is not surprising that apart from the location, only a little background information is known.
