My great grandfather, Francis, whose photo adorns the front of the Celebrated label, was born in 1847 into a Kent brewing family and was pivotal in the formation of the soft drinks company of today.
He trained as a brewer under his father, but after his father's death he emigrated to America in 1871, and became a partner in a brewing business in Cleveland, Ohio.
He then moved to Montreal. Canada, but due to his wife's continuing ill health he returned to England; and in 1882 he started brewing our Celebrated Soft Drinks in the rolling down lands of Hampshire, where the company is still located today.
Our Celebrated Range of soft drinks are made using only sparkling spring water and natural flavourings. They do not contain any artificial colourings, artificial sweeteners or preservatives.
As the fourth generation of the family to lead the company, I am
sure my great grandfather would have continued to enjoy his
Celebrated Range as I hope you do.
Root beer, Ginger Beer, Cloudy Lemonade, Dandelion & Burdock,
and Original Cola, are all available in 330ml glass bottles.
