The East Imperial story began with passion. A passion to put the tradition back into tonic water. Inspired by a family recipe from 1903, we tracked down the original, handpicked ingredients. Wanting to keep production traditional as well, we designed a small batch production method and a cold filling process, just like they used back in 1903. We then worked with the best bartenders from across Asia and the most skilled distillers from all over the world to create the highest quality range of mixers on the market. But take a sip and we’re sure you’ll agree that it was all worth it.
At East Imperial, tradition and quality are particularly important. All of our products are made using only the purest ingredients, sustainably sourced from Asia and East Africa, home of the original tonic water.
The handpicked Cinchona that we use originated from the very same Peruvian genus that was employed by one of our founder’s great grandfathers at his Kenyan plantation in 1903. Of course the lineage alone is impressive, but did you know it takes seven years for our Cinchona trees to grow, plus the scraping, air drying, smoking and processing takes a further seventeen days? That’s what it takes to put the finest tonic water in your tumbler.
We use all natural ingredients with no artificial flavours, sweeteners or preservatives. This practice provides the best tasting product with the added benefit of being good for you.
