The first thing you’ll notice is the rich amber color – a hint that Tomr’s Tonic is truly unique with a perfect balance between bitter and sweet, dry and refreshing. Tomr’s is not a mass- produced sticky sweet Tonic water made from high-fructose corn syrup and synthetic quinine. Instead Tomr’s Tonic is a 100% organic, well-balanced and bracing elixir/concentrate that combines the unique flavors real cinchona bark (quinine), citrus, herbs and cane sugar. The result is bracing herbal tones with a citrus touch that blends nicely with the bitter of quinine. Because we crafted Tomr’s Tonic as a syrup concentrate, it lasts longer, gives bartenders more flexibility and never goes flat.
About Tom's Handcrafted
Our focus is on massive flavor, not mass manufacturing. We would rather create a complex beverage in limited quantities then bulk produce a homogenized product that is devoid of passion, creativity and most of all taste. We want to provide you with a uniquely satisfying experience that is unmatched by anything in the marketplace.
We take time to carefully nurture every batch and use only the finest all natural and organic ingredients. The result is a beverage that delights, satisfies and is without equal.
Our History — An American "Can Do" Story
Founder and chief formulist Tom Richter (called Tommer by his dad, hence Tomr’s) was first a Broadway actor. Understandably, an acting career lends itself to lots of bartending gigs. Tom found himself “behind the stick” in some of New York City’s finest and most creative bars and through the years he has earned high praise for his talents behind the bar. He writes a beverage feature for Edible New Jersey Magazine and is a graduate of the prestigious B.A.R. program.
Richter had an epiphany while mixing his gazillionth gin and tonic. The flavor of the expensive gin the customer ordered was all but destroyed by the fructose sugar and synthetic quinine based tonic. He went home that night and immediately started tinkering with recipes and in 2007 he had his formula. Richter began serving it at the bar he was working and customers loved it, so much that were soon buying bottles to take home. Bartenders and Bar Managers heard about a unique tonic being made by a guy named Tom. They began inundating Richter with orders so they could serve it at their bars. And a business was born.
