Vernor's Ginger Ale


Vernor's Ginger Ale has sparkling fizz, a unique taste, and a history that goes back before Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Hires, or Moxie.  Upon returning from the Civil War in 1866, James Vernor opened a pharmacy in Detroit.  He also opened a barrel of ginger ale extract he had created before the war.  He discovered the four years of aging had mellowed the taste to perfection.  A new "deliciously different" flavor had been created, and Vernor's Ginger Ale was born.  From a small drugstore in Detroit to a product enjoyed across America and Canada, Vernor's is a success story.  Vernor's is the story of a small back-room product turned into a highly successful brand.  At over 140 years old, Vernor's is America's oldest continuously produced soft drink.
