Bergamot, the bitter orange from the toe of Italy (Calabria), is the essential Earl Grey ingredient that we have used in this unique tonic water. We always source our ingredients sustainably, by returning to the same farms and farming communities each year. This not only contributes to their long term sustainable income, but also ensures Folkington’s drinks have a unique consistency in both quality and taste.
Originally of Turkish origin, the bergamot is a unique fragrant orange that grows almost exclusively in the region of Calabria in Southern Italy. The oil of the fruit is widely used and is most famous for its use in Earl Grey tea.
Originating from China, tea is now grown across the African and Asian tropics. The leaves of the plant are cured to enable the flavour to be extracted by infusion.
Quinine is an extract from the bark of the Cinchona tree (“Cinchona officinalis”). The bark we use comes from India and can be traced back to the cinchona plantations established by the British Government in India in the 1860s.
Carbonated water, fruit sugar, natural botanical extracts, including natural quinine, natural flavour & citric acid.
