Bon Accord is a Scottish family soft drinks company, originally set up in 1903 by the current owner's Great-Great-Grandfather Karen Knowles. The famous glass bottles were a familiar sight in homes and on street doorsteps for generations. For over 100 years Bon Accord found a place in the hearts of the nation before operations closed in 2000.
Back after 16 years, Bon Accord's drinks are made with high quality ingredients and are all 100% naturally sweetened with coconut nectar and fruit juice, with no refined sugar or artificial sweeteners. Their range includes old favourites like Bona-Cola and Cream Soda as well as reimagined and innovative flavours for today like the delicious Rhubarb Soda and Salted Pink Grapefruit Soda.
From October 15th, this year, a new 750ml bottles of Ginger Beer, Cloudy Lemonade and Rhubarb Soda is also available via their online shop here. With people socialising at home more, returning to doing the ‘big shop’ and an uplift in online sales, Bon Accord founders Nathan Burrough and Karen Knowles saw an opportunity to offer customers a sharing bottle.
“We know our customers are always looking for something new to try, especially now that everyone is home more, and our sharing size is the perfect treat to have with your family as you hang out at home." added Karen, “Our drinks are naturally sweetened with fruit juice and coconut nectar, Bon Accord uses high-quality ingredients and never artificially sweeteners. People are embracing alcohol-free drinks and are becoming more conscious about what they’re consuming."
The three flavours are now also available in 30 Co-Op stores as part of their 'Local Launch' campaign.
“As a society we are becoming more discerning – seeking out new brands and buying from small businesses and it’s brilliant that Co-op are looking at what emerging brands might appeal to their customers. " commented Nathan, "And while we are a smaller producer than many other premium soft drinks companies, we’re confident that that our flavours and quality can compete with the big guys in the supermarket”
