Real bubbles up your nose. Yes, the real feeling of the bubbles. We worked on it for years before released it to get it just right. Give it a whiff and you'll understand. The name "SODA" was coined in the early nineteenth century, but the product's true beginnings go back several centuries to biblical times when bubbling waters from natural springs with minerals dissolved in the water were a much sought after delight. As early as 400 B C, the Greek physician Hippocrates wrote a book enticed, "Airs Waters, and Places", touting the powers of naturally carbonated mineral waters. In Europe beginning in the late seventeen hundreds, it became fashionable to visit the natural mineral springs to either drink of the "healthful" waters or to bathe in them. Spas were also becoming popular in the New World, and as early as 1767, the waters of Jackson's Spa in Boston were bottled and sold to satisfy a rapidly growing demand for its therapeutic miracles. Scientists soon perfected a way of producing artificially carbonated water in the laboratory. By the 1830's, both artificial and natural mineral waters were considered healthy and refreshing products in America. But pharmacists, believing they could improve upon their curative properties, experimented with a multitude of ingredients from birch bark to dandelions. While no miracle cures developed, some very interesting flavors and tastes were discovered. Ginger ale, root beer, sarsaparilla, lemon and strawberry were among the most popular of the early flavors. In 1890 John J McLaughlin opened a plant in Toronto, Canada to bottle soda water. In 1907, the name CANADA DRY was given to the pale dry ginger ale he made, and a 20th century icon came into being. Today you can enjoy that dry, not-too-sweet freshness all the time with Demeter Ginger Ale.
