Introducing New Cedarberg Aqua Tonic Waters

Words: Stéphanie Pereira

South Africans loves a good Gin and Tonic. We’ve told you about gin, so let us tell you about the new Cedarberg Aqua Tonic Water range. Cedarberg Aqua recently launched their new range of Tonic Waters available in Classic, Buchu, Twist of Lemon, Blueberry and Rose. These 5 delicious flavours are also available in a sugar-free range that is just as fresh and tasty as the originals.

The beginning of Cedarberg Aqua

Cedarberg Aqua is the brainchild of Lieben Van Der Merwe, one of the well-known Van Der Merwe brothers from Citrusdal.  Lieben was semi-retired when he ventured into the natural water business back in 2002 as a result of his own market and consumer research. He travelled throughout South Africa and observed buying patterns of consumers who stop at service stations along the country’s roads.

Ironically, it was an experience in a roadside farm stall near Marienthal in Namibia where he finally made up his mind to develop the rich natural water resource of Kleinswartvlei farm into a thriving business. Cedarberg Aqua Tonic Water was the next step for the Cedarberg Aqua family.

Recently, daughter Esmari Schoonwinkel took over the reigns, and known for her fine taste and style it was no surprise that a new, beautifully packaged and well designed Cedarberg Aqua baby was born. Made with this pure mineral water, Cedarberg Aqua launched their very-appealing range of all natural Tonic Water in 5 delicious flavours- original and sugar-free.

5 Delicious Flavours of Tonic Water Paired with Food

Cedarberg Aqua’s Classic tonic is made from mineral water, natural tonic (made from juniper berries), blood orange and quinine- all natural ingredients making this a pure 100% natural product. The other 4 delicious flavours have the same ingredients as the Classic tonic, but with extra flavouring.

We know that tonic water pairs perfectly with gin, but what about different foods? The launch of Cedarberg Aqua’s Tonic Water showed us creative food pairings to enhance each flavour:

  • Classic Tonic paired with oysters with litchi foam.
  • Rose Tonic paired with toasted rose marshmallows between shortbread cookies.
  • Buchu Tonic paired with tuna ceviche on a buchu-flavoured cracker with avocado.
  • Blueberry Tonic paired with a blueberry and pork stew.
  • Twist of Lemon Tonic paired with a mildly spiced chicken curry.

Packaged and Sourced

Cedarberg Aqua’s mineral water, and now Tonic Water, originates from the pristine, untouched peaks and slopes of an awe-inspiring mountain, and flows down through layers of Cape Sandstone – nature’s own superior filter.

The Tonic Waters are packaged in 200ml 100% recyclable PET bottles with similar size specifications as their canned congruents giving you the same pouring experience.

Sugar Free Range

Their sugar free range has proven to be very successful due to its health benefits and the fact that it has no aftertaste as typical sugar free products have. Try it, you will be pleasantly surprised!
