The best known of all gin cocktails is also the most demanding of all on the character of the gin used. Only a gin originating from a wheat brandy will allow the gin tonic to release all the richness and subtlety of its inimitable bouquet of flavours, without unbalancing or distorting them.
The other essential characteristic for a successful gin tonic is to use a gin with sufficient aromatic power for its aromas to express themselves properly as a counterpoint to the tonic, which is obtained with a good gin bottled at a minimum of 43%.
