The Picture says it!Posted: November 20, 2015
After some consideration, well….a lot and maybe too much, I’m going to go with my gut feeling and do Fever-Tree YCN brief. I’ve wasted a week in deciding which brief to pick so I have to make up the time over the weekend. Being unable to attend a group tutorial wasn’t helpful either, then again I didn’t knowing where I stood with the briefs.
Start with a general look at Fever-Tree, Brief and Cause.
Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water launched in the UK in early 2005, the brand name chosen due to fever tree being the colloquial name for the cinchona tree in which quinine, a key ingredient for tonic, is found. The highest quality quinine was sourced from the Rwanda Congo border and blended with spring water and eight botanical flavours, including rare ingredients such as marigold extracts and a bitter orange from Tanzania. Crucially, no artificial sweeteners, preservatives or flavourings were added.
Gin and Tonic is in vogue yet what a lot of people don’t know is that the discovery of quinine, tonic’s key ingredient, was one of the most significant discoveries in medical history. Quinine’s anti-malarial properties have saved millions of lives since the early 1600s and now, we want to help bring an end to malaria and save millions more lives from this preventable and treatable disease. Malaria is a disease that still kills approximately 180,000 children under five each year in the Congo – the very area where we source our quinine.
