If you've never questioned what goes into your tonic water that you so fondly enjoy (in multiple ways), you must! This complex beverage deserves all your attention. It's sweet, sour, bitter and now organic too, thanks to Bengal Bay Drinks. This Indie beverage brand, based out of Delhi is bringing us premium quality tonic made with carefully sourced ingredients.
Founder Rishabh Gupta shares that his quest to concoct the perfect tonic began after he found that most, even expensive brands didn't have one that was balanced rightly enough to be drunk on its own. So he began sourcing indigenous ingredients and created India's first organic tonic. Bengal Bay Drinks' tonic water has flavours of sweet oranges sourced from Nagpur and cardamom from Kerala. Quinine that gives tonic it's distinctive bitter flavour comes from Peru, while organic cane sugar from Uttar Pradesh. The result is a low in sugar (only 35 calories per serving), subtle citrus and spice flavoured beverage, well balanced for the perfect sip, with or without your preferred spirit.
Coming to how you can enjoy Bengal Bay Tonic Water, the list is endless! You can go the usual gin and tequila route or like the brand does, you can also make a tea tonic, coffee tonic or lemonade tonic! Check out Bengal Bay's Instagram highlights for some bomb recipes. Each bottle retails at INR 99 for 250 ml (largest premium tonic water bottle) and they ship across India.
