Are you aware that Ginger Ale, as we know it today, is a Canadian development? Ginger ale was first development in Ireland as an alcoholic drink.
  • In the late 1890's John J, McLaughlin, a Toronto pharmacist, began a quest to develop a non-alcoholic soda-based ginger drink which he could bottle so that customers could take it home to enjoy. (In that time soda drinks could only be bought and consumed at drug stores.)
  • He used as his base recipe Belfast-style ginger ale. But following a champagne-tasting trip to France he became convinced that a lightly coloured and clear ginger ale would be his ticket to riches.
  • He was right. Canada Dry Ginger Ale, now a product of Cadbury Schweppes, plc, has grown to become one of the most recognized brands in the world.
  • It is interesting to note that North America is about the only place, in my experience, that ginger ale is drunk as a beverage. In most places, especially in the Asian countries, ginger ale is only used as a mix.
  • If you want to get a funny look, order ginger ale as a beverage in Hong Kong or Tokyo!
  • 2 pack of 710 ml plastic bottles. Shipping weight is 3 pounds.
