What’s Wrong With Quinine?

Well, if you have Malaria, or even restless leg syndrome, then Quinine is your friend. But Quinine is essentially medicine, and healthy people shouldn’t be drinking medicine. You don’t want to develop Cinchonism now, do ya?

Where traditional Tonic Water relies on Quinine for its bitterness, Hopwater has actually patented the process of using hops as a bittering agent in a tonic water, and as a preservative in a non-alcoholic beverage. That means we get the bitterness without the poison. Imagine that! And you get the heady, hoppy, floral aroma as an added bonus, at no extra charge.
