Answer: Fever-Tree!

Over the past few years, this tonic-water and mixer maker hasn’t so much ‘grown’ as ‘exploded, launching into the stratosphere like a big, gin-powered rocket of bubbles.’

After all, it was only a couple of decades ago when the company was a niche start-up thing, founded by a couple of gin-loving mates, selling a single premium product through Selfridges and Waitrose.

These days, you’ll find Fever-Tree mixers all over the world, the concept has spawned a host of imitators, and the brand is worth about a gazillion pounds on the Stock Exchange.

Yet it still retains that sought-after aura for the spirit connoisseur. Basically, my wife will narrow her eyes and peer darkly at you, should she find it unavailable for purchase behind your bar. (It’ll be F-T Mediterranean, since you ask. And just a single shot of gin, for everybody’s sake).

For a bonus point – tonic water was originally produced as a response to which ailment?

That would be malaria – originally derived from tree bark, the quinine in tonic water offers some protection against the tropical disease.
