Fitch & Leedes Heritage cocktails support local distillers 


FITCH & LEEDES, the proud South African range of mixers, has developed new #SupportLocal taste sensations for its Ltd Edition Indian Tonic Heritage cans, showcasing the best of local craft distilleries.

Taking Heritage Month up a notch, Fitch & Leedes mixologists have come up with some exciting flavour combinations to mashup their Limited Edition Indian Tonic Heritage cans with the wide selection of local craft spirits.

“By supporting local businesses we support each other, especially during Heritage Month,” says James Shaw, Fitch & Leedes brand manager.

Taking Heritage Month even further, Fitch & Leedes has teamed up with National Braai Day and Jan Braai to unite all cultures around the fire on September 24. To get the party started, look out for the Braaiday Celebration Box full of #Braaiday memorabilia and Fitch & Leedes Heritage cans at selected stores.

“Jan Braai has become synonymous with South African braai culture and as a locally produced brand, Fitch & Leedes is the perfect partner to celebrate our proud heritage. We will also take the opportunity to link up with local spirit brands by encouraging followers of our digital platforms to #SupportLocal by showcasing South African craft distilleries as a run-up to Heritage Day,” says Shaw.

Constantly pushing the boundaries in terms of product innovation, quality and taste, Fitch & Leedes mixers are preferred by most master distillers, mixologists and G&T lovers.
