Are you aware that Ginger Ale, as we know it today, is a Canadian development? Ginger ale was first developed 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 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 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!
