Vanguard Luxury Brands has expanded its portfolio to include Quina Fina, a new premium tonic water from New Zealand.
Quina Fina is made from cinchona bark extract (containing quinine) that is ethically grown in Ecuador, which is then blended with local artesian water, organic lemon, and cane sugar.
The result is a clean, dry and bitter tonic water, with a touch of with a lemon citrus acidity, which can perfectly complement a range of spirits. Quina Fina was recently named the Supreme Winner at the 2013 Cuisine Magazine New Zealand Artisan Awards.
“Jacob Briars and Alex Gledhill have ensured that every aspect of the production of this brand is done to perfection. The product itself is top quality which is made even better by Jacob and Alex’s actions in preserving and replenishing the native cinchona trees of Ecuador,” said Vanguard Luxury Brands director, James France.
