It comes in individual, bottle-cap bottles that are designed for one drink. Q Tonic does some things differently from commercial brands: -Hand-picked quinine from the Peruvian Andes (not synthetic) -Organic agave as the sweetener (no high-fructose corn syrup!) -60% fewer calories than regular tonic water (one bottle has 24, that's right 24 calories) -85% lower glycemic rating than other tonic waters (that's the agave working) I don't think synthetic quinine is a huge issue, but using agave instead of corn syrup IS. And 24 calories? Wow. Most Tonic's are at least 90. Not to mention the quietly awesome bottle. The company claims Q Tonic has a sharper, cleaner taste with a gently rounded sweetness - one that doesn't overpower your drink, but rather complements it. Sadly I can't give my own opinion on Q Tonic yet as I haven't had a chance to try it. But you can be sure I will soon, and let you know! UPDATE: LIttle box came today with 2 bottles. I must say, not bad at all! First of all the bottle design is quite elegant, and it has a real bottle-cap you have to open (one of my little quirks). Oh yes, the tonic itself. I've always been a bit more on the gin side, preferring a slightly higher g to t ratio. Perhaps this is why I like Q Tonic. It is sweet enough to add flavor and mask the quinine bitterness, but just enough - it leaves plenty of savory crispness. Yet it's certainly not bitter, just a teeny bit less sweet than other tonics - perhaps agave is sweeter AND lower in calories? (1 bottle is 30 btw.) All in all, this may just be my new favorite tonic. I highly recommend you try a bottle and see what you think.

While I've recommended Bombay Sapphire in the past, Bombay Dry Gin is the original recipe and my standard go-to. Their distillation process captures all the right flavors using all the right ingredients (coriander and angelica root to name 2) giving the gin a slightly more earthy, rounded taste, while letting the juniper berries shine. It's a great gin (it's been made roughly the same way since 1761) and is cheaper than the sapphire version. Plus, I think that's Queen Victoria on the bottle, so win-win, right?

It's simple, it works, and I like the yellow label. It's available everywhere in a standard 1-liter bottle, and also in single serve packs as shown here. Canada Dry also makes a mythical sugar-free version which I have yet to see in my local stores.
