The Colour of Summer is PINK!
Visitors to Gourmet Escape will be the first in Australia to try the new Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic Water, adding a splash of pink to the classic Gin and Tonic this summer.
Inspired by a historic recipe used by the Royal Navy in the 19th Century, and using the highest quality angostura bark sourced from South America, the Aromatic Tonic can be enjoyed in a Pink G&T or as a sophisticated soft drink on its own.
Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic will be available in selected bars and bottle stores across Australia after Gourmet Escape.
