    At $8.72 a litre, I'd be expecting them to come and pour it for me.

    Hello All,


    Being the inquisitive sod that I am .. I had a gekko at Fever Tree... Here is a critique about it. Looks like it has some selectively sourced ingredients ...; accessed 23rd February 2021 from, Review: Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water - Drinkhacker

    Kind regards
    Lionel

    Yeah, it's not what it used to be that's for sure - I buy the sugar free stuff myself.

    You get what you pay for. Life’s too short to waste good gin on crap tonic water.

    Yes, but you like trucks from a butter manufacturer.
