Franklin & Sons has been at the forefront of innovation since the Victorian era known for introducing innovative flavours to the UK. Today our soft drink flavours still combine the finest quality, specially sourced ingredients from around the globe. The recipes draw on unique flavours with real provenance from Yorkshire Rhubarb through to Sicilian Lemon, all of which blend with harmonising tastes of fruits, herbs and spices.
Each Franklin & Sons soft drink is created to perfectly match with delicious meals for every occasion. The introduction of a tertiary culinary ingredient within each recipe, combined with only a subtle carbonation, ensures the drink delivers the highest quality effervescence for pairing with food, as well as creating a perfectly balanced standalone refreshment.
Ingredients & Provenance
Dating back to Victorian London, Franklin & Sons has always had a passion for original, great tasting drinks. 130 years later their success is celebrated in today’s range, which combines the finest quality ingredients specially sourced from around the world.
Taking inspiration from the founding brothers, Franklins has continued its search for quality by sourcing the finest ingredients, hand-picking them at their best. Franklin & Sons use local fruit, roots and herbs, to ensure we support British agriculture where possible and provide the finest tasting drinks.
Franklin & Sons has been the forefront of innovation since the Victorian era. This ethos is continued today through carefully constructed recipes that combine exceptional ingredients that each undergoes a unique process. Each recipe only ever uses natural flavours, extracts and colours and never includes sweeteners or preservatives.
Franklin & Sons products were first introduced in 1886, sold from their small family confectioners shop at 171 High Street, Rickmansworth, London. The three Franklin brothers then began to introduce innovative flavours to the UK, selling their handcrafted range of soft drinks to great acclaim.
