Fever-TreeFever Tree Tonic
Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water launched in the UK in early 2005. The brand name was chosen because fever-tree is 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 Mexico. Since its launch, the Fever-Tree range has received widespread acclaim from drinks critics, bartenders and gastronomes worldwide. This year the company has been awarded #1 Best Selling and Top Trending tonic by the World's 50 Best Bars (Drinks International) for the fourth year running. Since launching, they have created a range of new products - each taking a similarly intrepid attitude to sourcing quality botanicals. The result is fourteen delicious drinks to mix or enjoy on their own.

Beer & Cider Academy Beer & Cider Academy
The Beer and Cider Academy was founded as the Beer Academy in 2003 by a small group of beer enthusiasts and quickly attracted support from brewers (large and small), beer retailers, trade associations and consumer groups who enabled the Academy to put together a series of courses and training materials delivered by a small number of experienced and knowledgeable tutors with a real passion for beer. To date, over 4,000 people have attended Academy courses together with a further 10,000 who have enjoyed talks and beer tastings at venues like the BBC Good Food Show, the Great British Beer Festival and the British Museum as well as in pubs and bars up and down the country.  We now have 166 Beer Sommeliers from seventeen countries, many of whom make a living from their beer knowledge.  With the launch incorporation of cider, we are now looking forward to training Cider Pommeliers with equal success.
