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

    Here is a list of stores for Fentimans.

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

      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.

        I've seen Fever Tree at Cookbooks Co.

          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.

            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.

              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.
