The Zero-Calorie Tonic Water To Drink This Summer

The Zero-Calorie Tonic Water To Drink This Summer

Once upon a time, you had a gin and Schweppes. Fast forward a few decades and we were all drinking Fever Tree. Now there’s a new tonic water that’s got the drinks industry talking – calorie-free Gallybird. Known for its great taste, extra effervescence and sugar-free credentials, Gallybird is a one-of-a-kind tonic that’s shaking up the market…

It’s Calorie Free

Created in Sussex, Gallybird is the first sugar-free premium tonic water sweetened purely with stevia leaf extract. Stevia leaf has been enjoyed for centuries in South America and Japan as a healthy, natural alternative to sugar. Gallybird has harnessed the sweetness of stevia and blended it with quinine and citrus notes to create an entirely natural alternative to the sugary mixers currently on the market. Stevia leaf is suitable for diabetics, vegans and vegetarians. It has considerable anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, as well as being good for your teeth and skin.

It’s Naturally Sugar Free

Most Indian tonic waters contain an average of more than four teaspoons of sugar in a 200ml bottle. ‘Light’ or ‘skinny’ versions are still surprisingly high in sugar, averaging more than two teaspoons. Those with no sugar use artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, which can play havoc with your body’s insulin levels. Gallybird is different because it’s naturally sugar free. Sweetened only with stevia, it has no effect on your body’s blood sugar.

It Won’t Overpower Your G&T

Gallybird has been blended by experts to enhance your drink, not overpower it. Its feather-light taste is different to other tonic waters and allows the flavours of your chosen spirit, or non-alcoholic alternative, to shine through.

It’s Extra Fizzy

Many tonics lose their sparkle too soon, making your drink flat before you’ve had a chance to finish it. Gallybird has been formulated to create an altogether bubblier taste experience. With just a touch more effervescence than other tonics, it stays fizzier and refreshing for longer once you’re poured it.

How To Drink It

Here are three top spirits to pair with Gallybird…


Gallybird & Black Cow Pure Milk Vodka

We love this delicious, unusual vodka made from whey (what’s left over from milk when making cheese). Gallybird doesn’t overpower, but instead allows the subtle flavours of this smooth Dorset vodka to shine though. Simply pour over ice and serve with a slice of lemon.

Gallybird & Hendrick’s Gin

Hendrick’s has an unusual flavour and method of distilling, which Gallybird’s delicate flavour enhances. Serve your gin with loads of ice, Gallybird, a couple of slices of orange and a scattering of pink peppercorns for a new take on a G&T.

Gallybird & Seedlip

Seedlip is Gallybird’s non-alcoholic spirit of choice. Pour a healthy measure of Seedlip Garden 108 over lots of ice, add Gallybird and a ribbon of cucumber, plus a leaf or two of basil. This is what to drink when you’re not drinking: a lean, clean and green cocktail with no sugar and zero calories.
