In the Muteman mixer family, the only babble you hear comes
from the bottle, and the family prefers doing the talking.
The Muteman family currently includes two unforgettable mixers: Premium Tonic and the newcomer, Ginger Beer.

 
 

Premium Tonic

Premium Tonic was created as a tribute to world-class Finnish gins. The drink’s charm isn’t just empty talk – it’s based on an artfully crafted recipe: natural quinine and a beautifully balanced blend of bitter and citrus flavours. There is only 7.8 g of sugar per 100 ml, so with Muteman there’s no need for sweet talk. We have no comment on that, but the unspoken truth is that Finns make excellent gins. Muteman Premium Tonic Water is a tribute to this fact and its charm isn’t just empty talk – it’s based on an artfully crafted recipe: natural quinine and a beautifully balanced blend of bitter and citrus flavours. There is only 7.8 g of sugar per 100 ml, so with Muteman there’s no need for sweet talk.

 

Ginger Beer

We wanted to create the perfect ginger beer mixer that would give a good fresh kick to cocktails such as the Moscow Mule. This mixer is also ideal for drinking neat with crushed ice and lime. You’ll taste plenty of real ginger, a hint of fermented flavour and a dash of citrus peel. With 10 g of sugar per 100 ml, it is perfectly balanced.

This symphony of flavours has been created by Master Distiller Mykkänen. Yes. Mykkänen is Finnish for ‘mute man’.
 
“The idea behind the Muteman mixer range is to ensure that the drinks are not too sweet. Too much sugar will mask a gin’s best qualities. A mixer shouldn’t feature any single strong flavour that interferes with the nuances of the gin. The perfect mixer must be balanced in itself and with the gin. It’s a good idea to taste the mixer by itself first, then mix it with the gin; this allows you to really notice the difference. I developed the Muteman range so that I can enjoy mixers that I like, with tastes I’ll never get tired of. By the way, let’s be clear about one thing: I only focus on creating fantastic drink recipes. The joke about my last name and the portrait on the label were the work of some creative types at the advertising agency. I suppose I’ll get used to them.”
 
The idea is to create a whole range of flavours for the Muteman product
family, so if you have any ideas, speak up. Silence is not golden in this case.

 

Cheers!
