Two-thirds of a drink is often the mixer and yet Charles Rolls and Tim Warrillow noticed a lack of top-quality tonic to accompany premium gin. So in 2005 they produced a mixer to fill this gap and moved into the international market soon after. In 2006 the venture capitalist London & Lochside invested in the firm, which now also makes premium bitter lemon and ginger ale mixers. The London company exports to 25 countries and its foreign sales have risen 94% a year, from £1.1m in 2008 to £4.3m in 2010.
