What is a Gin & Tonic?
Gin & Tonic is probably one of the best-known and most popular long drinks ever. What began as the so-called gin boom has now been going on uninterrupted for almost ten years. A gin & tonic is one of those drinks where the name and recipe are the same. The classic combination of gin and tonic water has existed for over 100 years. That makes it a simple drink and a great classic. Maybe that's why Gin & Tonic is the Queen's favorite drink! It shouldn't be missing on any good bar menu - and of course not in your bar at home either!
With our Laori Juniper No 1 you can easily enjoy this classic non-alcoholic drink - without losing taste and of course without a hangover!

Which tonic is best?
The question of all gin & tonic questions - none is asked more often. Best advice: don't make science out of it. Especially if you are just getting into the subject. There is no right or wrong here and it is part of trying as many combinations as possible to find your favourites. How about, for example, a Laori & Cherry Blossom Tonic?
Regardless of which tonic you end up using, the following applies: use small glass bottles instead of large PET bottles.With PET, the carbon dioxide is gone after the third opening at the latest and glass bottles are even more sustainable
Then the next question comes up: How much tonic is there in the best case? We say: Drink your Laori & Tonic the way you like it and never let anyone tell you anything. In the end, it's more important to choose a tonic that you like and that harmonizes with Laori Juniper No 1. Exactly how much of it you use, on the other hand, is just a gut feeling.
Variations of non-alcoholic gin & tonics
How do you give your Laori & Tonic a completely unique note or push it a little more aromatically? There are dozens of options for this, but these are the easiest and most popular in the home bar:
- Gin spices: Also called "botanicals", just like those with which the gin is distilled. You simply add suitable spices, such as juniper berries or sprigs of rosemary, to the glass.
- Tea infusions: Put gin in a glass and hang a tea bag in it for about three minutes. Tea bags out, tonic on. Especially with fruit teas, the beautiful color effects and aromatic a completely new dimension. Earl Gray tea has a more classic taste than fruit tea - this gives your Laori & Tonic a mysterious dark color and harmonises perfectly with the bergamot used in Laori No 1.
