Award-winning, emerging beverage brand Soda Folk has brought American craft sodas in the UK, using only the best quality ingredients and modern-classic recipes, without anything artificial added. Originally from Colorado, its founder Ken Graham moved to London and immediately found himself homesick for American Root Beer, whose imports were banned due to excessive content of additives. Graham wanted to do things right.
“I started Soda Folk to introduce Britain to America’s best soft drink. We make the kind of root beer I grew up with: all natural, sweetened with cane sugar, with the perfect blend of sweetness and bite. I just knew that the British public was going to love it too,” he said.
American-style diner chain Byron and department store Selfridges are amongst the brand’s UK stockists and premium retailers. “With the craft soda revolution gaining pace in America and the hard soda trend coming to our shores, we’re excited to be the first to take Soda Folk root beers and cream sodas to our shelves,” said Scott Wilson, Grocery Buyer, Selfridges.
