"À LA FRANÇAISE"
Notre état d’esprit ? nous ne sommes pas des militants de la première heure, mais nous avons des valeurs… et surtout l’envie de bien faire. Bien sûr, nous ne sommes pas parfaits mais nous sommes transparents dans toutes nos démarches ! Nous nous attachons juste à bien faire les choses dans la mesure du possible, et nous ferons encore mieux demain…
« Because we believe in a better, responsible, healthier and optimistic world,
and because we are convinced that spirits, also, have to go in that direction,
we rethink beverages for adults and their eco-system differently ! »

THE TONIC "À
CRAFTED IN A DISTILLERY
Made and bottled in France,
But that is not enough !
Archibald, is the result of a botanical alchemy "à la française", and an original expertise in spirits, impregnated with good values.
*the French way
EXTRACTS OF PLANTS
GROWING IN FRANCE
For that, we had to reinvent the classic tonic recipe, which usually contains quinine for bitterness. However, quinine grows in South America. The French plant chosen to plat this crucial role : gentian, which of course course grows in the Auvergne meadows (more specifically extracts of gentian roots) and juniper berries (often associated with gin).
And water in all of this ? It comes from a source near Cognac.
Archibald is made in the heart of the "Spirit Valley", as it's known to professionals, close to Cognac, in a family distillery established in 1830.
"Spirits" expertise of its creator appears in its DNA, which explains why Archibald is different from other tonics.
By the way, originally, it is imagined as a gin without alcohol, with a great aromatic complexity..
VALUES OF A BETTER
AND HEALTHIER WORLD
Archibald, is the reflection of The Old Friends Company's state of mind :
...organic (so it's a natural product, well made), slightly sweetened, quinine free (which is an allergen).
... respect of the environment : its label is printed on a paper made of sugar cane fibers, which comes from a sugar industry waste recycling, its vegetable, its case from responsibly managed forests (FSC certification).
Why Archibald ?
Because this name means "Natural et Audacious"
ARCHIBALD IS A TONIC...
... that is to say, a bitter no-alcoholic refreshing and sparkling drink!
A SMOOTH AND FLAVOURFUL BITTERNESS : UNIQUE
A strong bias for the taste because different from quinine-based tonics that brings a bitterness very strong and neutral in taste
An herbal and even root taste coming from gentian and juniper berry
A subtle, sweet bitterness, especially on the finish
Very fine bubbles for more freshness and elegance
PURE OR AS A MIXER, AS YOU LIKE
Thanks to its perfectly balanced bitterness, and its rich and pleasant taste, Archibald can be enjoyed neat, very fresh
Its bitterness, herbal notes, and fine bubbles make it an excellent mixer that sublimates cocktails :
>> on one hand, because it is an elegant taste enhancer
>> on the other hand, because it the global aromatic becomes more complex.
