The buzzwords around every city in India nowadays seem to “au-naturale” “artisanal” and “homegrown”. Keeping up with this latest trend is entrepreneur Angad Soni who recently launched an exclusive line of tonic waters and mixers based out of Delhi called Sepoy & Co. While multinational companies churn out tonic waters, it’s been a  long time coming since someone realised that there needs to be an original Indian brand, albeit small, but one that makes the product with a exclusive twist.

 “Our story started halfway between New Delhi and London, sipping G & T’s in the air. That trip turned into an extensive tasting of Gin and Tonics (mostly Tonics) and a question — ‘Why?’ Why are there no premium natural mixers available in India to mix with all the great Gin's we buy?” says Soni. Which is why he went on to create a world class tonic or “premium adult soft beverage” as he prefers to call it, which is both 100 percent natural and can cater to the unique tastes of the Indian palate. Thus with plenty of diligence, patience and over a years hard work resulted in Sepoy & Co.. Soni worked with industry experts and distillers across India and England, to finally be satisfied with a perfectly balanced tonic water.

Sepoy & Co. uses a unique blend of essential oils and spices with quinine and just the right amount of carbonation, so that the products can make an accompaniment to spirit or even be enjoyed just as they are — a stand-alone soft beverage. It is expertly brewed in India, following the highest quality manufacturing and bottling practices.

Here’s good news for everyone who has been keeping off tonic due to its high number of calories, Sepoy & Co’s tonics are crafted precisely to be naturally light, and contain less than 5 grams of sugar, without compromising on the delicate balance of flavours. So you can go back to drinking your G&T’s without a worry of the affect it may have on your hips. The products are free from artificial sweeteners, flavours, preservatives and colours. Take your pick from three flavours—Indian tonic water, spiced grapefruit and good old mint.
