The signature bitter taste is produced by a combination of quinine and lemon pith used in manufacturing the drink. The principal difference between tonic water and bitter lemon is the addition of lemon juice, pith, and peel. Bitter lemon is drunk both by itself and as a mixer, and is sold across the world.
In South Africa the beverage is branded as Dry Lemon.
