EAST IMPERIAL

Back in 1825, British Army officers stationed in India combined quinine, sugar and water in an attempt to create a daily tonic to act as a malaria prophylaxis. Gin was later added to the mix to mask the strong and bitter taste of the quinine water. 189 years on, the quintessential gin and tonic has come a very long way. But not necessarily in a good way. The overly sweet citric acid soft drinks of our time have replaced genuine, traditional tonic water. These modern drinks completely mask the herbaceous aromas of premium gin and other spirits, manipulating the role that tonic water now plays in modern mixology. But the most discerning patrons and barmen are demanding superior quality beverages to complement premium spirits.

That's why East Imperial is a collection curated like no other, with unparalleled quality and taste. After all, you wouldn't put cheap, low quality tires on an Aston Martin. East Imperial's collection is led by our Old World Tonic Water. This signature beverage aims to put the heritage, integrity and authenticity of original tonic water back into your tumbler. Inspired by a 1903 recipe, East Imperial Tonic Waters are small batched and blended using all natural Asian sourced ingredients, New Zealand artesian spring water and a cold filled process. This traditional method of production ensures that the freshness and the subtleties of the botanicals are protected, taking tonic water back to its origins.

MOUNT EDEN SPIRITS CLUB | A GLOBAL GIN TOUR

Dating back to the middle ages, Gins humble origins were a form of herbal medicine. Over the centuries, this has evolved into one of the largest spirit categories globally. With what seems to be an ever growing list of ingredients and maturation methods, Gin has become one of the most diverse and popular spirits in style. To fully grasp this diversity, we will taste a range of London Dry styles from across Europe, New Zealand and Australia, while having a little fun exploring various mixing options from East Imperial. Tastings will be in a specially designed Gin glass from Riedel, which you can take home afterwards.
