Fever Tree Mixers

23 posts in this topic

This is incredibly good news for cocktail fanciers. Folks have posted here before about the virtues of Fever Tree tonic water, and supposedly Whole Foods carries them or was supposed to carry them, but they are now available, at least in D.C. and Maryland.

Fever Tree

The scary thing is, I was quite literally JUST talking about these things with some folks at Bourbon last night. :blink:

I mentioned on another link that Wegmans has them, I did not see them at the Fairfax Whole Foods this weekend. The tonic and ginger ale is very good, and my wife really loves the bitter lemon (I have not tried it yet).

Anybody tried Fever Tree Tonic Water? Any idea where to get it? I tried the BevMo chain in CA and they have it but it was $15 to ship $11 worth of tonic water. Any ideas?

Ace Beverage sells it, as does Wegman’s, and I have heard a rumor that Whole Foods has it as well. It is worth buying, as are their other products (ginger ale, bitter lemon, and seltzer water).

When I went in there today, MacArthur Beverages had Fever Tree Bitter Lemon, but not the tonic. I've been getting it at Ace, from Joe Riley.

I've bought the tonic water, the bitter lemon, and the ginger ale from Ace. I'd definitely recommend the first two, though it does depend on what gin you're drinking with them as to which I prefer.

The ginger ale is good, but I have to admit - I tend to prefer spicier ginger beers for the most part. I've got so much ginger ale/beer in my fridge that I probably wouldn't buy any again for a while...

I had Fever Tree Tonic and Q Tonic and I preferred Q Tonic. Both were very good though. I am not a huge Gin drinker (more a dark spirits dude), but a friend and I were able to polish off a bottle of Plymouth Gin and several bottles of Q Tonic over a poker game (btw, when you drink alot, you have no poker "tell"...no real sense of hand probability either tho).

Based on some other posts, I'd love to try the Fever Tree Ginger Ale!!! Can I get it at Whole Foods? I have never seen it there.

Has anyone seen the Fever Tree Tonic or Mediterranean Tonic locally and recently? I know it's available on amazon but was hoping to find brick and mortar.

99% sure that the P St Whole Foods still carries Fever Tree (I got some there over the summer)

As of last week, Schneider's on Capitol Hill has some Fever Tree products, including tonic, ginger beer, and a couple of other things.

World Market has Fever Tree at $2.49 each this week, regular $2.99.

Thanks for this. Virginia ABC stores need to dispense with "Q" and offer Fever Tree like they used to.

If you saw the inside of my refrigerator right now, right this second, you would laugh.

 

There is one bottle of San Pellegrino, and one little bottle of Fever Tree tonic water.

 

*Maybe* some half-and-half, and the remnants of some Kerrygold butter, and ... that's it.

 

Note to self: insert a bottle of decent Champagne at some point.

Fever Tree is my preferred tonic straight from a bottle, but for home consumption I've switched to my sodastream + Jack Rudy tonic syrup.  It's worth checking out when spring rolls back around (or you know, now)

My usual places to get Fever Tree products: MacArthur Beverages, Ace Beverage, and Rodman's.

Total Wine in McLean has them in abundance.

Yes, and they have the single larger sizes, can't remember the exact fluid oz off the top of my head, in addition to the 4 packs.

I'll only buy Fever Tree when I'm at Wegmans. Every other store seem obliged to tack on another 2 or 3 bucks per 4-pack.

I'm no longer finding Fever Tree "Naturally Light" Tonic Water, their lower-cal product, when I check the shelves.  Just unlucky, or are retailers no longer stocking this?

Thought I saw it last month at Total Wine in McLean.
