First of all, there are only 53 Tonics in the whole game, so you have to get every single one.

UPDATE: 2018-05-20
1. There are different statements regarding the DLC Tonics counting towards this achievement. It seems to be like this:
-> Ultimate Rapture Edition: the DLC Tonics have regular prices (more than 1 Adam) and they do NOT count for the achievement. Xbox One always upgrades your game to his edition!
-> Regular Edition with free DLC: the DLC Tonics cost 1 Adam and they do count for this achievement

For your own safety, try to get all the original tonics. Let us know in the comments what worked or didn't work for you so we can track this down.

2. I've marked the tonics that people claimed to be missable. Unfortunately I can't tell you at what point these become unobtainable as I haven't played this game for such a long time. I got them all in one go, so I'd say they are hard to miss if you watch out for them.

Original Story:
-9 are earned as Research rewards
-8 can be bought from Gatherers Gardens
-3 can be Invented at U-Invent
-3 are earned as Gifts for rescuing Little Sisters (you need all 18 to be saved)
-the other 30 are scattered throughout the whole game (check if you got them all before leaving a level to minimize backtracking)

I will now list the tonics in order they appear in the game:
