Producer: Strange Love
Product: Coastal Tonic
Locality: Carlton North, VIC
Description: A dry, low-bitterness tonic that - through a unique blend of delicate coastal botanicals - heroes the nuances of any top-shelf gin.
With a lively citrus backbone of Sicilian Lemon and Bergamot - emboldened by herbaceous, green undertones of old man saltbush, coastal thyme and sea parsley - StrangeLove Coastal Tonic is perilously hard to make, yet surprisingly easy to drink. It's a tonic water that accentuates, rather than dominates, any classic gin.
The unique acid profile of this tonic (a proprietory blend of tartaric and malic acid) results in a short-lived bitterness, with the finish instead giving way to a crisp, fresh mouthfeel with a wonderful, delicate salinity that accentuates the delicate characteristics of your gin, while maintaining it's original intent.
StrangeLove Coastal Tonic is relatively dry at 6.0g of sugar per 100ml.
Contains a slightly pretentious pinch of Murray River Pink Flake Salt, because salt clearly makes everything in life more enjoyable.
