Montgomery Donald

The easiest way to make your own tonic water at home - ready-to-use botanical infusion bags for authentic homemade tonic syrup.

Our Story

We were founded by Nick Donald, but our brand inspiration and mascot was Monty Donald, our beloved old Border Terrier.

We started trading in October 2019 but have been making tonics since 2013. We fell in love with the taste of real tonic on a visit to London. It is so much better than that offered by the mainstream commercial producers. I learned to make my own tonic syrups and then developed the botanically filled tonic bags so it can be easily infused, sweetened and served at home.

We make a range of make-at-home botanically rich tonic bags. The bags are infused for 24 hours before being sweetened with your choice of syrup to make an authentic tonic cordial. You then mix the cordial with sparkling water and your favourite spirit (if you wish).

Our ability to provide a proper tonic taste with the smallest carbon footprint. Our hand packed tonic bags fit through your letterbox and within 24 hours provide you with 28 servings of tasty beverage. We do this without adding piles of glass, metal or plastic to your recycling bin.

Proper tonic complements gins of all kinds and elevates budget gins to new levels.
