SPECTACULAR AND UNIQUE MIXERS FROM SPAIN
On the Indi journey to develop their range of INDI & Cº Mixers, research has taken them back centuries to when the traditions of preserving and distilling first began in El Puerto de Santa María, the Guadalquivir Valley, in Andalucia, Spain.
For hundreds of years the aromatic herbs, lemons and oranges, for which the area around Sevilla has become famous, have been dried and used for medicinal and culinary purposes.
Mix these traditions with the arrival of exotic ingredients such as quinine and vanilla, from the West Indies in the 16th century and a whole new way of mixing, blending and distilling the best of the Mediterranean and Caribbean started to develop.
Indeed the Municipal Archive in Cádiz has records dating back to the 17th century describing the distilling of different botanical plants, like quinine and citrus fruits.
Is an exclusive refreshing drink produced by traditional methods which are macerated and distilled with botanical extracts of kola nut, lemon, lime and violet, highlighting the best mix of natural aromas and flavors. Great to enjoy on its own or in combination with quality rums or whiskies.
The idea of partaking of quinine based drinks for medicinal purposes soon spread across Europe, and to the Indies thanks to the East India Company. Consequently quinine became the principle ingredient in Tonic Water.
INDI & Cº mixers is the culmination of years of knowledge and experimentation into the ways in which the many Mediterranean and Oriental plants available can be macerated and distilled to extract the purest and most intense aromas and flavours.
We use traditional methods of maceration, fermentation and distillation from the very best ingredients which our team carefully selects in our home country of Spain, the West Indies and the East.
