From its 1999 entrance into the market, Magnum Tonic Wine has grown tremendously and is now easily one of Lascelles' top performing brands. Its steady ascent has simultaneously taken on a personality of its own echoing the best of Jamaican dancehall and its fashionable culture. Also if there's one thing that is certain, it's that Magnum Tonic Wine is serious about energizing entertainment by developing authentic Jamaican culture. The brand has therefore gained a far reaching repertoire for its contribution to development of culture in Jamaica via varied sponsorship and promotion of the product in both rural and urban areas. On a greater scale, Magnum has become relentless in its contribution towards Mainstream dancehall culture, partnering with some of the hottest artistes, dancers, entertainers and even Jamaica's number one sound system, Stone Love. Magnum has also upped the ante by being a title sponsor for Jamaica's first televised dancehall show - The Magnum Kings & Queens of Dancehall Competition which was launched in 2007. Following on the heels of this successful show, Magnum went on to tour the island with the newly crowned King & Queen of dancehall via its Magnum Kings & Queens of Dancehall Summer Road show. The success of the 2007 and the 2008 summer tours were phenomenal. The brand's consumers are as diverse as its many promotions, ranging from those in rural Jamaica who remain faithful to the brand for its promises of sexual fulfillment to those in the urban areas who view the brand for its lifestyle elements and the ever fashionable association. It should therefore come as no surprise that Magnum is a bestseller in mainstream wholesale and bar channels and is actively sought after by promoters and patrons alike. Quintessentially, Magnum is as much top dancehall as Jamaica is to the dancehall culture. As the brand continues its expansions, Magnum is expected to surpass its current offerings and in turn reap major benefits from its wide acceptance and brand recognition across all spheres.
Sanatogen tonic wine 'with added iron' retains the delightful taste of the original product. Sanatogen original tonic wine was intorduced 50 years ago, made by the traditional blending of full-bodied Ruby British wine with special Sanatogen formula to produce the unique mellow flavour of Sanatogen tonic wine.
The recipe for the Tonic wine is attributed to the original French monks who settled at Buckfast Abbey in the 1880's. Base wines from Spain, known as mistellas, were imported and to these were added the tonic ingredients according to the old recipe. By the 1920's 1400 bottles were sold annually, 500 from Buckfast and the remainder by post. In 1927 a London wine merchant was visiting the Abbey, and in conversation with the Abbot, Anscar Vonnier, it was decided that the monks would continue to make the Tonic wine with the distribution and sale to be carried out by a separate marketing company. In order to broaden its appeal the Tonic was changed slightly from a rather severe patent medicine to a smoother, more mature medicated wine. Having taken on the marketing of 'Buckfast' the distributing company adopted a reserved promotional approach resulting in the widespread appreciation of the product nationally and internationally. In modern times it continues to be made by the monks of Buckfast Abbey along the same lines and according to the same basic recipe as used in the very early days. The main difficulty lies in the successful addition of inert substances to a base wine - a living and natural entity. The selection of the base wine is thus of prime importance. Today the base mistellas come from France providing the ideal medium for the skill and expertise of the monks to produce a finished product round and mature to the most discerning of tastes.
