Fever-Tree, the world’s leading producer of premium tonics and mixers, is boosting its mixers range with a new collection of three low-calorie sodas just in time for summer.
The Soda Collection is Fever-Tree’s answer to the rising popularity of the spritz. With each soda under 40 calories, they have been crafted to transform a variety of different premium spirits into sophisticated lighter summer drinks.
Matthew Jamieson, Fever-Tree New Zealand Brand Manager, says The Soda Collection was crafted to offer healthier, lower calorie mixers without compromising on taste.
“Our research tells us that over summer New Zealanders look to lighter, healthier drinks and at the same time we’re seeing a resurgence of simple, fuss-free drinks, both in the bar and at home.
“Fever-Tree’s philosophy is simple – to create the best-tasting mixers to complement the world’s finest spirits. If three quarters of your drink is the mixer, mix with the best,” he says.
Made with naturally sourced ingredients and sweetened with fructose (fruit sugars), The Soda Collection includes Pink Grapefruit Soda, Lime & Yuzu Soda, and Italian Blood Orange Soda.
Created using the same approach to craft its range of tonic waters and ginger mixers, Fever-Tree’s flavoured sodas pair perfectly with vodkas and gins, through to vermouths and Italian liqueurs.
Rose Cottingham, Head of Innovation at Fever-Tree, says, “Our new flavoured sodas elevate popular serves to create delicious and sophisticated low-calorie mixed drinks. Take our Italian Blood Orange Soda, which is great mixed with vodka or Italian aperitifs.
“It can be an interesting twist on the classic vodka soda and can also stand with the summer spritzes we enjoy out at pubs, bars and restaurants. The simplicity of these delicious-tasting drinks means we can make them at home with little on hand,” she says.
