🌱 Light Tonic Water: A Guilt-Free G&T 🌱

Introducing East Imperial Light Tonic Water, their first low-calorie tonic that maintains the high quality one has come to expect from their brand. Boasting less than 18 calories and 3.75g of sugar per serve, this refreshing and healthy tonic water doesn't compromise on taste. Now, one can indulge in a G&T without the guilt of extra calories!

🍸 Tonic Water: A Timeless Classic 🍸

East Imperial Tonic Water features the highest quinine levels in the market, creating a contemporary and elegant taste. Infused with Thai lemongrass and Manao lime, this tonic water draws inspiration from the traditional Long Pink Gins of the Pegu Club in Rangoon, Burma. To recreate this classic, simply add two to four dashes of bitters to a Gin and Tonic. It is recommended to pair this tonic with citrus-driven and London dry style gins for a perfectly balanced drink.

πŸ‹ Yuzu Tonic Water: A Citrus Sensation πŸ‹

East Imperial Yuzu Tonic Water is designed to create a citrus-forward Gin and Tonic or add a bright note to a favorite cocktail. Yuzu, a sweet and aromatic citrus fruit from Northern Asia, is often described as a hybrid between a mandarin and a Meyer lemon. Introduced to South East Asia at the turn of the last century, it brought a unique and exceptional citrus brightness and was soon embraced by discerning cocktail drinkers. It has now been embraced by hospitality professionals globally. Enjoy this refreshing mixer with a robust, yuzu-forward gin to create an unforgettable experience.

πŸ₯” Big Cut Purple and Gold: The Ultimate Crunch Experience πŸ₯”

Introducing the latest innovation from Nelson-based Proper Crisps: Big Cut Purple and Gold, Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt crisps. These new crisps deliver a "ridiculously bigger satisfying crunch" that will leave you craving more.

🌟 A Unique Texture and Flavor 🌟

Using golden and purple potatoes, Big Cut crisps are unpeeled, sliced thicker, and hand-cooked low and slow, resulting in a glorious and blistery golden crisp. The unique cooking process creates a texture that's unparalleled, offering the perfect balance between crunch and a hint of a fluffy middle, reminiscent of a thrice-cooked restaurant chip.

Head Cultivator, Duncan Kerr, explains that Big Cut crisps are cooked nearly twice as long as other chips, ensuring a satisfying crunch without greasy fingers. Boasting a 4 Health Star rating, these crisps offer a luxurious snacking experience while still being mindful of one's well-being.

🌈 Purple & Gold Cracked Pepper & Sea Salt 🌈

The thickly cut golden and purple potatoes are expertly seasoned with Marlborough Sea Salt and a vibrant blend of freshly cracked rainbow peppercorns, creating a BIG peppery flavor that perfectly complements the crisp's unique texture. Hand-cracked in Proper Crisps' very own seasoning room, these chips are a testament to their commitment to quality and flavor.

Indulge in the unparalleled crunch and taste of Big Cut Purple and Gold, Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt crisps – the perfect accompaniment to your CLINK gin experience! 🍸
