Yorkshire Tonic has added to its trophy cabinet with a win at the Quality Food Awards 2021.

The company’s new Paradise Yorkshire Tonic took first prize in the Foodservice – Soft Drinks category.

Paradise is made with natural extracts of quassia and Mediterranean botanicals including Sicilian lemon and rosemary to give it a fresh, sharp flavour.

Yorkshire Tonic is produced at Raisthorpe Distillery on the Yorkshire Wolds by blending local water with a range of citrus and fruity botanicals and quassia, rather than traditional quinine.

Paradise was added to the Yorkshire Tonic range following demand from consumers for a crisp and refreshing mixer from God’s Own Country.

The range includes Apple and Elderflower and Pink Grapefruit - both Great Taste Awards winners – and Citrus, Skinny and Premium tonics which all have accredited vegan status. The tonic is also available in popular Strawberry and Pomegranate and Mixed Berry flavours.

Oliver Medforth, sales and operations director said: “We are delighted to have received a Quality Food Award for our newest Yorkshire Tonic. Paradise is a versatile mixer which can be paired with any premium gin or vodka or served simply with ice and a slice.

“We have seen demand grow for this type of tonic from pubs and bars and Paradise ticks the boxes when it comes to being fresh, sharp, strong and made in Yorkshire.”
