Fever-Tree commission garden at Chelsea Flower Show

Published:  13 January, 2011

The UK drinks company, Fever-Tree is to appear at The Royal Horticultural Society's Chelsea Flower Show in May.

Co-founders Charles Rolls and Tim Warrillow have commissioned RHS gold medal winning garden designer Stephen Hall to design a theatrical, playful garden inspired by the natural and exotic ingredients used by Fever-Tree in their range of natural premium mixers.

The Fever-Tree Garden is in the 'Artisan' category of the show and its most striking feature
will be a real tree house, made partly from reclaimed cinchona wood from the Congo.

It was here that Rolls and Warrillow traced one of the last remaining plantations of
cinchona Ledgriana trees that produce the highest quality natural quinine for its tonic waters.

Rolls, said: "For Fever-Tree, taste is everything and in order to create the best mixers on the planet Tim and I have travelled extensively, hunting for the highest quality natural ingredients for the mixers range."

"Other plants found in the Fever-Tree garden will reflect some of these such as the chocolatey ginger from Cochin, which goes into the ginger ale and ginger beer; zesty Sicilian lemons used in Fever-Tree Lemon Tonic and Lemonade; and fragrant rosemary and lemon thyme from La Drome in Provence.
