Canada Dry Seltzer 12pk/1L
John McLaughlin opened a small plant in Toronto, Canada, in 1890 to manufacture soda water, which he sold in siphons to drugstores as a mixer for fruit juices and flavored extracts. After many painstaking experiments, McLaughlin achieved the perfect formula for Canada Dry Ginger Ale in 1904. In 1919, McLaughlin began to ship the product to New York City, and two years later, the first Canada Dry plant was opened on 38th Street in Manhattan. Consumer demand soon outgrew the production capacity of the New York City plant, which sparked a program of national expansion. It was during this growth that the famous "Down from Canada Came Tales of a Wonderful Beverage" advertising campaign was developed. There's no doubt that the pleasant qualities of ginger ale made it the perfect mixer to mask the taste of home brew during Prohibition. The '30s saw the introduction of Canada Dry's Sparkling Seltzer Water, quickly followed by tonic water, Collins mix and other fruit flavors as mixers.
