Subtle note of bitternessKinley Tonic has a distinctive, slightly sweet taste. It is a sparkling beverage with the addition of fruit extracts, sugar and quinine. It is quinine added in minimum amounts that distinguishes the tonic and lends it a subtle note of bitterness. Kinley Tonic is mainly consumed as a refreshing chilled drink, sometimes with the addition of lemon or as an ingredient of cocktails.
The history of the classic Kinley Tonic Water, linked to the British presence in India, dates back to mid-19th century. The tonic became a preferred drink of gentlemen and has been associated since then with elegance and a sophisticated taste.
Kinley entered the Polish market in 1993 and has always been a favourite among tonics. It was designed with adults in mind as they are able to appreciate the unique taste – not very sweet, distinct, with a hint of bitterness.
Historically, Kinley Tonic was primarily aimed at people aged about 40 and as a result the brand was associated with maturity, high status and exclusivity. Kinley was perceived as an occasional drink, for special occasions. However, the tonic category changed over the last years – the beverage is increasingly popular with younger people, mainly twenty- and thirty-year-olds.
The classic tonic is currently available in Poland in 0.2-litre returnable glass bottles as well as 1-litre and 2-litre PET bottles.
