Tonic Water - for Gin

Not sure this is the right board for this... but given that it is a mixer, this seems to be the closest match.

Recently read an article (I think it was NYT)about "boutique" tonics. While I've spent lots of time tasting different gins (I'm partial to Hendrick's), I continue to bemoan the syrupy tonics widely available.

Any opinions on the various boutique/designer tonic waters out there?
