NB and Bon Accord in premium tonic partnership

NB & Bon Accord premium tonic

Scottish gin producer NB Distillery and Bon Accord soft drinks have unveiled a co-branded premium tonic.

The tonic compliments NB’s existing premium spirits range. It launched in the off-trade this week via North Berwick-based Lockett Bros, ahead of a national roll out over the coming year. Retailers may also buy direct from Bon Accord, subject to a one pallet minimum order.

Specifically designed to complement gin as the hero product and not mask it, the tonic uses natural quinine and provides a clean, crisp flavour with hints of citrus and vanilla. It contains less quinine than other tonic waters, providing a less bitter flavour throughout and a subtler, refreshing taste.

Vivienne Muir (pictured right), CEO for NB Distillery, said: “We know that Britain is a nation of gin lovers and there is a growing trend for speciality and premium tonic. In response to this growth, the NB & Bon Accord tonic will not only complement our existing range, but can be enjoyed with a variety of premium spirits.”

Karen Knowles (pictured left), Owner and Director of Bon Accord, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with NB Distillery. Our understated tonic water really enhances NB’s spirit range, allowing consumers to experience the premium spirits at their best. After all, a great spirit should be celebrated!”

New NB & Bon Accord Tonic has an RSP of 95p per bottle or £20 per case.
