LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE
the History of Soft drinks
In recent years the global market size of the soft drink industry has topped 400 billion dollars, resulting in a bottle of Coca-Cola being more accessible than drinkable water in some countries. Since ancient times humans have been experimenting to improve the taste, appearance, safety, and benefits of water. The result has been thousands of new beverages, some that enjoyed a brief moment en vogue, while others rose and remain in a position of global dominance.
In this webinar, Justin Fornal covers some of history’s most beloved, maligned and unusual soft drinks. He explores their plant connections and traces popular everyday beverages back to their mysterious origins in ancient medicine.
