Interestingly, it was alcoholic drinks that became the first carbonated drinks in the 1600s. Beer, wine, and champagne were fermented and chemists were constantly experimenting with processes that led to the discovery of a special apparatus that filled the liquid with bubbles. English scientist Joseph Priestley made a significant discovery in 1767 when he hung a bottle of water over a beer vat. This invention was a breakthrough in the development of carbonated drinks. The popular Coca-Cola and Pepsi, which we have come to know and love, became popular in the 1960s.
- Joseph Priestley was admitted to the French Academy of Sciences in 1772.
- 7-up was patented as a medicine until the 1950s.
- Coca-Cola is the world’s best-selling drink, with each inhabitant of the planet getting 1.5 bottles, on average.
- Fanta was created by Germans during the Second World War when export was prohibited. It was made from whey and apple pomace, which were food waste.
