The company's name comes from its initial product, a tonic water. Their tonic was flavoured with quinine, a chemical extracted from the bark of the South American cinchona tree. When introduced to India as a pharmaceutical to aid in reducing the fever associated with malaria, quinine was blended with soda water and sugar to make it more palatable, producing the earliest tonic water. The cinchona tree was referred to in India as fever tree.

Based in west London, Fever-Tree makes a variety of products, including tonic water, ginger beer and lemonade. As of March 2015, their products were exported to 50 countries.[5]

In March 2013, the founders sold 25% of the company to Lloyds Development Capital.[4] In November 2014, the company floated on the London Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol LSE:FEVR; the IPO valued Fever-Tree at £154.4m.[6] As of January 2018, its market value had increased fourfold.[7]
