In line with 2019’s Pantone Colour of the Year, Chill Beverages International has released the shade of the summer with its new Fitch & Leedes Grapefruit Tonic.
This new tonic hits the spot with a flurry of zesty grapefruit combined with delicate hints of bitterness. Fusing fun and finesse, it uplifts the senses with every sip.
Stepping out with a brand new retro look, the Grapefruit Tonic struts its stuff in style in a glass bottle sealed with a crown cap and embossed with the signature Fitch & Leedes sailing ship.

Sundowners in the city
This versatile grapefruit tonic takes consumers from day to night. Enjoy it while basking in the sun, at a sophisticated upmarket venue for sundowners and everywhere in between. The vivacious tonic is a breath of fresh air when paired with premium gin, vodka or tequila.
Flirting with delicate fizz and fine balance, Fitch & Leedes Grapefruit Tonic ensures the best taste representation of what was intended by the master distiller. Fitch & Leedes shines the spotlight on the hard work and skill put into creating fine spirits, making it the preferred mixer for most leading distillers.
‘A great addition to the Fitch & Leedes line-up, the new grapefruit tonic is the perfect balance of bitter and sweet and makes for a crisp, refreshing G&T. We love it with our African Botanical Gin, previously known as our Salt River Gin, where it adds a fresh citrus tanginess to balance the fynbos botanicals,’ says Lucy Beard of Hope on Hopkins, the craft distillery in Salt River.
The perfect serve
Her perfect serve is one part Hope on Hopkins African Botanical Gin to four parts Fitch & Leedes Grapefruit Tonic garnished with a slice of grapefruit and a sprig of thyme, or with a few muddled summer berries and mint.
The Grapefruit Tonic is the perfect accessory for G&Ts and cocktails, and ticks the box as a perfect non-alcoholic alternative.
Fitch & Leedes can be found at leading purveyors of fine beverages, boutique wine shops, selected delis, fine dining establishments and cocktail bars. It sells at a RSP of R54.99 for a six-pack of 200ml cans or R49.99 per four-pack of 200ml glass bottles.
