THE ULTIMATE COMPLEMENT TO PREMIUM SPIRITS
At East Imperial, tradition and quality are particularly important. All of our products are made using only the purest ingredients sustainably sourced from Asia and East Africa, home of the original tonic water.
The hand picked cinchona that we use originated from the very same Java, Indonesia plantation that was used to supply one of the founder’s great grandfathers at his Kenya plantation in 1903. Of course the lineage alone is impressive, but did you know it takes seven years for our cinchona trees to grow, and the scraping, air drying, smoking and processing takes a further seventeen days? That’s what it takes to put the finest tonic water in your tumbler.
This is not a soft drink, but a tonic water. We use all natural ingredients with no artificial flavours, sweeteners or preservatives. This practice provides the best tasting product with the added benefit of being good for you.
