Soft drinks are one of the most popular refreshments and are widely consumed around the world. But soft drinks are not a new phenomenon, they have been consumed since ancient times, though in a different form. In Tudor England, people drank a sweetened drink with lemon flavor. Comprising cream of tartar, the drink was known as ‘water imperial’. Another popular drink was ‘Manays Cryste’. Though the history of marketing the first carbonated beverage dates back to the 17th century, it was only in the 18th century that Joseph Priestly, an English chemist, developed carbonated water. This ultimately led to the development of soft drinks, which is today one of the biggest industries of the world.
