Cornish soft drinks company Jolly’s, launch their new canned Cornish Tonic Water.
After a move to a state of the art premises, this innovative company has breathed new life into a much-loved Cornish drinks brand, originally started in 1896. Despite initial delays due to lockdown, the company is excited to now see their canned Tonic Water hit the shelves.
Managing Director Cheryl Ingram commented “With such a resurgence of the Cornish Gin scene we felt it only right that our first drink to launch from our new canned range of soft drinks should be our Cornish Tonic Water. We are thrilled with our new brand look, stylish environmentally-friendly packaging and our 200ml can is the perfect size for a gin and tonic – we can’t wait for you all to try it!”
The first stocks of the Cornish Tonic Water were delivered by Roger Jolly, (great, great-great-grandson of original mix master John Jolly), with his classic Old Wells Fargo delivery lorry to Cornish distributor WestCountry in Falmouth. Emma Johnson from WestCountry commented, “We are very excited to be the first distributor for this new product under our Fine Food brand Plough to Plate. It’s great to see this iconic brand being brought back to life!”
Jolly’s new Cornish Tonic Water is made with fresh Cornish water from a spring that was discovered 40 metres below the new factory and is blended with natural quinine and botanicals with notes of citrus. Also available in a light low-calorie version, it’s the perfect partner for your favourite gin or vodka – Cornish or otherwise!
Jolly’s other soft drinks include Sparkling Elderflower, which is available now, with Pink Lemonade, Ginger Beer, and Cornish Cola currently in production and due for release at the end of the year.
With big plans for the factory in Saltash, Jolly’s is bringing manufacturing back to Cornwall, helping to regenerate the local economy with new jobs as it expands – and after a very turbulent year, this could be just the tonic Cornwall needs!
