The Boylan Bottling Company has been making sodas in small batches since 1891. They weren’t the only ones making sodas back then, but unlike many of the world wide brands conceived in that same era, Boylan has remained true to its roots and committed to producing only authentic handcrafted soda.
Boylan hand-crafted sodas stand on their own and they speak for themselves with no hype, no marketing tricks. While their sodas might cost more per ounce than the big soda pop brands, all of that cost is in their product…not paying for slick ad campaigns and celebrity spokesmen. They’ve learned that the best way to sell their sodas is simply to be the best, and the accolades and awards which they’ve received tells us here they are doing a very good job.
Blue Dog carries the whole Boylan line including: Root Beer, Grape, Orange, Creme, Cola, Diet Cane Cola, and Seltzers to name a few.
The beautifully tinted, imaginatively shaped Ramune bottle, with a texture that evokes a certain feeling of warmth… Ramune has been a beloved cultural staple since the Meiji era (the mid 1800s) in Japan. Indeed, it is impossible not to feel a nostalgic charm for its unique appearance and flavor.
So what is “Ramune”?
Ramune is a carbonated drink that has a glass marble “plug” in the mouth of the bottle. Regarding questions concerning Ramune, in 1978, the (Fair Trade Commission) has released the following statement:
“A situation arising over the misunderstanding by the consumer regarding Ramune is unfavorable. Therefore, the name “Ramune” refers to a carbonated beverage filled in a bottle with a glass-marble plug (also known as a Codd-Neck Bottle). Nurtured into creation by the efforts of small businesses for nearly 150 years, one could say that Ramune is the pioneer of the Japanese soft drink.”
