Hi,

Does anyone know where I can buy Fentimans or Fever Tree tonic in calgary? I know I can get Q tonic from Planet Organic. They had Fentimans at Charcut - and I'd like some for home.

Thanks!
-Patrick

        Cookbook Co. has fever tree - $2.50/bottle, and they have Fentiman's as well. Also Wine Arts carries both. Also, Community has better prices on Q tonic then planet organic.

        Thanks for all the pointers! Tonight, we do some G&T blind taste testing to find the favourite!!

          I`ve been in contact with Jeff @BirchBeverages & he`s on it as far as service is concerned. Will be buying a case later in the week. Thanks for the contact reference!

              We tried Q, Fever Tree, Fentimans, Canada Dry and Schweppes. Winners were Fever Tree and Schweppes (blind tasting).

                Fentimans #1 for us, followed by Fever Tree. Jeff @ Birch Beverages delivers great service. Also like the Fentiman`s Ginger Beer a lot.

            Bridgeland Market has a nice assortment of not your run of the mill beverages. I don't specifically recall seeing those there but you might want to give them a call.

              I found some Fentimans tonic at Blush Lane organic market, but it is apparently not something they normally stock. Cost was $2.49/bottle.

              Birch's Beverages (http://www.birchbeverage.com) say they will sell/deliver by the case (24) - cost is $2.25/bottle.

                I've seen Fever Tree at Cookbooks Co.

                  I've seen different Fentimans drinks at Planet Organic in Edmonton so Calgary might carry it too...

                    They don't - even though they are listed as a distributor.

                    Here is a list of stores for Fentimans.

                    http://fentimans.wix.com/test#!__page...

                    Wholesale distributor at the top might be able to point you at other locations.

                      Ok, that's a good idea, have some e-mails out.
