Franklin & Sons

Gin&tonics are still popular in the Netherlands, as guest you often have plenty of choice between different gins. It kind of seems as if the tonic is forgotten while tonics are just as important as gins. The tonics of Franklin & Sons give the guest an additional choice. They contain no preservatives or artificial sweeteners but only natural flavours and extracts. All tonics of Franklin & Sons are gluten free.


Franklin & Sons is a story of three brothers from the heart of London. In 1886 the Franklin brothers started selling homemade sodas in their own grocery store. Today the assortment is expanded with tonics, mixers like ginger ale and Scottish soda water  and soft drinks, but the philosophy of the Franklins remains sacred: to create artisanal drinks with unique ingredients and outstanding flavours. The cute retro bottles also refer to the rich history. The soft drinks that are on sale now at the wholesaler Het Zwijgertje BV: Cloudy Apple & Yorkshire Rhubarb with Cinnamon; British Dandelion & Handpicked Burdock with Star Anise; Brewed Ginger Beer with Malted Barley & a squeeze of Lemon; Wild Strawberry & Scottish Raspberry with cracked Black Pepper.
