Q Tonic? Is it a hoax?

Back in November (I think, maybe early December) there was an article in The New York Times about a company making their own tonic water. The company is Q Tonic.

I contacted them just after New Year's, thinking that their tonic would make a great gift for my brother-who-has-everything and loves gin and tonics in the summer (but hates all the high fructose corn syrup in the store tonics.)

Well, it has now been 5 1/2 months and still no tonic. They have called me back twice to say "oh! Soon!" but they haven't responded to my most recent calls.

Has anyone else had any luck getting Q Tonic?

Usually I would just turn my back on a company that operates that way, but I really want to give my brother an unusual gift. grrrrrrr...........

      YUP, been there tried that.
      I have *begged* them to sell me some tonic, but so far nothing. I am willing to buy as much or as little as they want me to......still ignored.
      To heck with them!
