1724 takes its name from the altitude where it harvests that key component to all tonics ? quinine. The quinine they use is hand-picked at 1,724 metres above sea level on the Peruvian Inca Trail. This is intended for use with super-premium spirits and high quality cocktails.
The result is a very fresh, bright tonic water which is a less bitter in comparison to other tonics. It?s not sweet by any means, simply light on the quinine. 1724 Tonic is also very effervescent, which gives a beautiful zesty nose and a crisp finish.
Made by the same producer, it will come as no surprise to anyone that 1724 Tonic goes particularly well with Gin Mare. Over the course of 2014, 1724 Tonic and Gin Mare became (from an international perspective) symbols of the resurgent Spanish market along with Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia?s appetite for the G&T.
