“The gin and tonic has saved more Englishman's lives, and minds, than all the doctors in the empire.”

-Winston Churchill

Where most cocktails start with a spirit and add a mixer to change its flavor, the Gin & Tonic began the other way around. Starting in the 1600s, British soldiers stationed in India and Africa were given a daily ration of incredibly bitter quinine to fight malaria. Quinine powder kept troops alive and many experimented with gin, sugar and lime to improve its flavor. This proved to be an exceptional episode in the history of mixology, one where the spirit was added to the mixer to improve the mixer's flavor.


With this history in mind, neighborhood locals and Wine Merchant regulars Ryan Flahive and Jeff Weiss have launched Timberline Tonic Syrup.  Like the tonics dating back to the British Empire, our tonic syrup is made with natural quinine from Peruvian cinchona bark.  Timberline Tonic is proudly crafted in Colorado, using only the highest quality natural ingredients.


Finally, a tonic deserving of the finest spirits.
