Lift Your Spirits!
You're in for a treat
- simply add sparkling water, or even still water, as you like
Here at Jeffrey’s, we think it’s about time everyone thought again about what a soft drink should be, and what they expect from a tonic.
The whole tonic thing has taken off, with so many different plain, clear, fizzy tonics available. But there must be a place for soft drinks which taste great and beautiful tonic hand-made and designed specifically for gin.
Jeffrey's range of Handcrafted Cordials and Classic Premium Indian Tonic Syrup are made from infusions of natural herbs and spices.
The Handcrafted Cordials are simply wonderful soft drinks, typically made up with about 5 or 6 parts sparkling water. They also make amazing mixers for spirits, making superb home cocktails.
Your craft gin deserves a craft tonic and our Classic Premium Indian Tonic Syrup delivers, making a simply superb tonic water when added to sparkling water - 1:5 or 6 to your own taste. Bring your gin to life!
Indian Tonic Syrup
So much effort has been put into gin botanicals, we felt there was a need for a Craft Tonic for your Craft Gin.
We 'simply' use Cinchona bark and organic Sicilian lemon juice and our special process to make a beautiful and very classy tonic which when added to sparkling water is a most excellent tonic water.
It is designed to make the absolute best of your gin, and complex gins open up beautifully. This being a syrup of course, means you have control of the strength of your mixer.
But it does also make a very refreshing soft drink, and astonishing value. Just try it!
Sicilian lemon & Warm spices - our original recipe
Our first recipe was based around some long time spent in the Far East, where we developed a taste for the warm spices of Malaysia.
Cassia, clove and allspice all come together in what would be a warm, enfolding, almost Christmas, experience - were it not for the fact that it is brilliant with ice and soda!
The Original 'soft drink and mixer'.
This one is perfect for a sunny day, perhaps watching the tennis.
The distinctive flavour of organic lime juice comes through, with a subtle background of galangal - another unusual, but delicious, Far Eastern and citrus echo.
And finally, some might say, the best of the lot. The lovely delicate flavour of Yarrow, with the roundness and warmth of rosehip and the familiar note of elderflower, which does work so nicely with a pink gin.
It really does work well with gin, but we are very proud to say that it is a very nicely adult drink for when you're 'just saying no'.

What's the story?
A DIFFERENT APPROACH
TO SOFT DRINKS & MIXERS...
We started with a book for Christmas..
Recipes for home-made tonics provided the inspiration, with the quinine from an infusion of cinchona providing lovely balance.
The recipes weren't perfect. But the principle remained. With a bit (actually, loads!) of recipe development, it worked well enough for friends and family that it inspired us to make more.
We didn't quite understand how much work would be needed to produce such lovely soft drinks and to perfect them so that they look as wonderful as they taste.
But we just had to find the best, completely natural combinations of herbs and spices for yummy, interesting drinks. Our understanding of cinchona then helped us to produce just the BEST tonic syrup you can buy (we reckon - and we've tasted everything we can get our hands on).
You know your stuff - Enjoy a cooling Jeffrey's!
IT JUST WORKS!
The great thing about Jeffrey's syrups is that they can work in cocktails, as well as 'just' (ha!) in a Gin & Tonic.
They all work with gin, and vodka is obviously an easy mix, but you might be surprised how well the 'Original' goes with whisky (we recommend Glenmorangie, but then we are particular).
The sun’s over the yardarm, have yourself a Gin and Jeffrey's cocktail!
ON THE WAGON?
If you’re not drinking alcohol, have yourself a tasty adult drink for once! None of your ‘just a tonic water, please’, or ‘I’m driving, so I’ll just have a lime and soda’. You don’t have to put up with stuff you don’t really enjoy that much. Jeffrey’s is an ‘adult’ drink, with no compromise on flavour enjoyment, filled with a tasty range of natural herbs and spices, with organic Sicilian lemon or lime juice.
