Tonic water

Here goes, me very first post.....does anyone know where to buy Q tonic water in Montreal/ surrounding areas. Or even Fever-Tree, Stirrings, tonic water. Thanks. I never thought I was drinking a can of regular pop to go with my gin, until I looked closely at the sugar content in the tonic water I get from the supermarket....C Dry, Schwepps etc which are loaded with corn syrup sweetner. I should have clued in because whenever I have offered a G&T to friends that has never tried it, they seem to not mind it at all.

For the gin fans, I have recently tried the Hendricks gin from Scotland......very smooth, tasted side by side with Bombay Sapphire, which packed a whollop compared to Hendricks. I think it is because Bombay has more botanicals in it. Hmmm, I am yet to taste the cucumber and rose petal infusion in Hendricks. However, it was pretty novel dropping a slice of cucumber (yeah, yeah I know this is sacrilage to the hard core G&T drinkers) in my G&T instead of the usual lime/lemon. I love the smell and taste of cucumber, so it was a nice change.
