Indi & Co., the world’s first distilled botanical mixer, is now available in the United States.
The beverage is produced in Puerto de la Santa Maria, Spain, using Old World ingredients and techniques, the company says. All of its ingredients are 100 percent natural, with no artificial colorings or preservatives.
Indi uses real quinine bark, not ground powder, to create its refreshing tonics.
Indi’s botanical mixers can be paired with high-end spirits, including gins and vodkas. They are also great as a non-alcoholic, healthier alternative to soda, the company says. Indi is available in traditional Tonic Water, Seville Orange and Lemon Tonic flavors in California, Nevada, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, Florida, Connecticut, Arizona, West Virginia, Colorado, and Tennessee.
The suggested retail price is $9.99 for a four-pack.
Indi’s beverages are an ode to century-old traditions of preserving and distilling organic ingredients in the Guadalquivir Valley in Andalucia, Spain, the company says. The region is known for its aromatic herbs, lemons and oranges. Indi taps into those native ingredients, while adding flavors like quinine and vanilla that historically arrived in Spain via trade routes from the West Indies.
To make its beverages, Indi selects high-quality fruits, herbs and plants and then macerates them separately for four weeks to extract the raw flavor. The results are rich concentrates, the company says, carefully blended together in century-old alembic stills.
Once the distillation process is complete (approximately 5 hours), the concentrate is blended together with purified water, natural sugars and fruit juices.
