Amsterdam’s Damrak Gin and Brooklyn’s Q Drinks announce today that the brands have collaborated to create a craft gin & tonic kit scheduled to hit retail outlets nationwide this month and which will be available through summer 2018.
The gift pack will feature a 750 ml bottle of Damrak Gin and 500 ml bottle of Q’s original tonic packaged in a handsome box with convenient rope handle, making it a handy companion for picnic, beach day or barbeque. It will retail for $21.99.
Damrak has been called the most accessible gin on the market. A flavor profile featuring fresh citrus notes on the front while the juniper plays a supporting role distinguishes the Amsterdammer from traditional London Dry gins.
Q Original Tonic is highlighted by quinine from real trees, a light sweetness from agave syrup (as opposed to sugar or high-fructose corn syrup), and levels of carbonation so high, the company had to design a custom bottle to hold in all those bubbles.
Says Brett Dunne, Lucas Bols USA Managing Director: “We are excited to expand our presence in retail outlets nationally with our Craft Gin and Tonic kit. The emergence of craft gins like Damrak and premium tonics like Q make this the perfect summer entertaining occasion purchase.”
Crystal Chase, of New York City’s award-winning Seamstress says, “Q Tonic is light in carbonation and sweetness, allowing Damrak Gin’s citrus and botanical qualities to shine through while added the perfect amount of bitterness in the perfect serve – Amsterdam Gin & Tonic.”
