Keep reading to find out which club sodas are giving our cocktails serious flavor and plenty of fizz.
Fever Tree Club Soda
A favorite among premium club sodas, the qualities of Fever-Tree Club Soda make it ideal for mixing with a fine whiskey. The club soda's unique taste derives from the use of soft spring water, bicarbonate of soda and a high level of carbonation. In addition to club soda, the brand boasts an ample number of tonics, including Elderflower Tonic Water, Lemon Tonic, Citrus Tonic Water and Aromatic Tonic Water.
Suntory Yamazaki Soda Water
When considering what to mix with a Japanese whisky, why not opt for a club soda created in Yamazaki, Japan, the birthplace of Japanese whisky? The award-winning Suntory Yamazaki Soda Water is made using natural mineral water from the famed Yamazaki Distillery.
H2OPS Sparkling Hop Water
A club soda option for beer lovers, H2OPS' Sparkling Hop Water is brewed with Northwest hops. Although unsweetened and free of alcohol, carbohydrates and calories, Sparkling Hop Water provides an array of flavors (grapefruit, lemon, lime, pine, blueberry, floral, mint and earthy spices) upon first sip. This unique set of flavors comes courtesy of the addition of hops. Sparkling Hop Water's complex variety of flavors make it ideal for beer and liquor-based cocktails.
Q Mixers Club Soda
As the self-proclaimed creators of "the world's best carbonated mixers," Q Mixers certainly know a thing or two about club soda. Unlike other club sodas, Q Mixers club soda is made with a very special ingredient: Himalayan salt. Their club soda is recommended with Scotch and soda, and Night Gardens, a Q Mixers-created cocktail comprised of a Japanese whisky, tea syrup, Q club soda and lemon peel.
Regatta Craft Mixers Pacific Sea Salt Club Soda
Priding itself on its lineup of products that flaunt a complex yet well-balanced flavor palate, Regatta Craft Mixers' newly-introduced Pacific Sea Salt Club Soda is a worthy addition to any spirit. Keeping portability in mind with Pacific Sea Salt Club Soda, the packaging for the beverage is lightweight and stands at 8.4 oz., creating little leftovers.
Beebolin Kattegat Club Soda
Taking its name from a narrow passage of the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Denmark, Kattegat Club Soda is inspired by the body of water's low salt levels. Truly a craft beverage, Kattegat Club Soda is made using sea water evaporated gently. The addition of potassium and magnesium make this club soda a great pick for enjoying alone, but it'd be hard to pass on the combination of Kattegat and whisky.
