Jun 13, 2019by Owen Bellwood

Global Brands-owned Franklin & Sons has unveiled a new Mallorcan-inspired tonic water to give drinkers a “taste of the Mediterranean summer”.

Franklin & Sons Mallorcan Tonic Water combines lemon, lime and grapefruit with rosemary, thyme and cinchona bark extract. Steve Perez, chairman of Global Brands, said: “We developed the new Mallorcan Tonic Water to give consumers a real taste of the Mediterranean summer. "Franklin & Sons remains at the forefront of flavour discovery, taking inspiration from the original Franklin brothers, who travelled the world to source the finest natural ingredients and introduce new, innovative flavours to consumers. “This ethos continues today and emulates an expedition to the Golden Valley, also known as the Valley of the Orange Trees on the West coast of Mallorca, to source a blend of unique citrus flavours. In today’s recipe, we have taken this concept and blended hints of these unique citrus notes with rosemary and thyme to create a perfectly balanced Mediterranean-style tonic water.” The "zesty" flavours of the new tonic water are said to pair well with citrus gins and add "depth" to sweeter spirits. The Mallorcan Tonic Water can also be partnered with vodka, blanco Tequila and fortified wine. Available in a 200ml bottles, the new release features a "striking blue label". Earlier this year, the Global Brands-owned manufacturer partnered with bartender Rich Woods, chef Sophie Michell and writer Rosie Birkett to launch its Taste Collective campaign.
