Two-thirds of a cocktail is usually the mixer – and yet Charles Rolls, 56, and Tim Warrillow, 38, noticed a lack of top-quality tonic to accompany gin. In 2004, they started experimenting with mixers made from natural ingredients, subsequently launching their Premium Indian Tonic Water a year later. The London-based business has since expanded its range to include lemonade and ginger beer, and it now exports to 45 countries around the world. Sales reached £16.6m in 2012 and private equity house LDC bought a 49% stake in 2013, valuing the drinks maker at £48m.
