Quina Fina Tonic Water 250ml 4Pk
Tonic Water has a long history that began in the cloud forests of Loja Province, Ecuador. Here in 1630, Jesuit Monks were the first to use the bark of the Cinchona tree, and it's naturally occurring quinine to treat fever - and later maleria. This ignited centuries of trade that was defined by religion , conflict, colonialism, and deforestation.
Most famously, Cinchona seedlings were exported to British Colonial India where the 'Gin & Tonic' was born - a daily ration of Gin, Quinine Extract, Lemon Juice, Cane sugar and Soda Water. Years later this has become one of the worlds most popular mixed drinks.
The Quina Fina story began in 2009 during a research trip to the historic city of Loja, Ecuador. Through a unique collaboration, Quina Fina established a locally supported project to grown Cinchona Officinalis in its native habitat and contribute to natural research. The project has created new interest in this important plant, right where it's history began nearly 400 years ago.
