CAPI Launch Low-Sugar Tonic, Expanding Their ‘Healthier for You’ Category

Inspired by its best-selling premium Dry Tonic, CAPI is excited to launch its first Low Sugar Tonic this June. Based on the same principals as its current tonics with natural quinine and nothing artificial, CAPI have cut the sugar and balanced it with a hint of yuzu for natural sweetness.
The Low Sugar Tonic contains less than 2.5 grams of sugar per 100ml, delivers a gin and tonic in just under 75 calories and is all natural with no artificial sweeteners.  This new product sits in the ‘better for you’ category that CAPI is building out, following the trend of healthier, less sugary products. 
The Low Sugar Tonic is very dry on the palate, leads with bright citrus flavours and pairs perfectly with an Australian craft gin, letting the botanicals of the gin leap to the front.
CAPI Low Sugar Tonic will also be available online at www.capi.com.au from 13th of June 2020 and stocked with national distributors and then in major spirit retailers from June 2020.
