A healthier tonic water for healthier lifestyles

Healthiness is not just a fad; its a way of life for more and more people. Gallybird embraces these values and with the help of history enables drinkers to be more health-conscious and socially aware.


This story comes from a mission to create a truly premium quality tonic water that is as naturally healthy, sugar and calorie free as it is delicious.

In order to enjoy a truly delicious sundowner in these modern and health aware times, Fo passionately believed that you shouldn’t have to compromise on either sugar, calories or natural ingredients.  It took over two years of research starting with Fo experimenting with various blends in her own kitchen in Sussex and subsequently working with many industry experts to finally achieve her vision in Gallybird.


Providing a great tasting sugar free and zero calorie option using the highest quality natural ingredients.

Indian tonic waters on average contain over 4 teaspoons of sugar and ‘light’ or ‘skinny’ natural versions are still shockingly high in sugar with on average over 2 teaspoons in a little 200ml bottle.  Gallybird is unique in being sugar free, zero calorie and totally natural.  We have nothing to hide. 

To achieve this our tonic water is sweetened with Stevia leaf, or ‘sweet herb’ as it is often referred to. Stevia has been enjoyed for centuries in South America as a calorie free, plant-based and natural alternative to sugar with medicinal qualities. It is suitable for diabetics, vegans and vegetarians and has considerable anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties as well as being good for your teeth and skin!


Origins of the Gallybird

Birds were using quinine as a prophylactic against malaria years before British soldiers were adding sugar and gin to make their medicinal quinine more palatable. The Gallybird’s spotted feathers are representative of the bubbly blend of tonic water now named after it.
