Bon Accord Is Back!
Once a dominant brand on the Scottish soft drink scene, Bon Accord was a household name and loved by many. Now, four generations on, the company has been revived and re-imagined for modern day consumers.
Founded in the early 1900’s by Thomas and David Robb, then expanded by Thomas’s four sons, Bon Accord has always been a family business with strong Scottish roots. With factories in Aberdeen and Arbroath, depots in Inverness and the Central Belt, and a fleet of iconic lorries, Bon Accord delivered soft drinks and cordials to communities all over Scotland.
Its famous glass bottles, which were collected and recycled, were a familiar sight in homes and on doorsteps for generations.
For over 100 years Bon Accord found a place in the hearts of the nation before operations were closed 2000. Now back after 16 years, it’s still a family business, but times have changed and with a new generation at the helm there’s a “new approach to pop”
Bon Accord Soft Drinks are full in flavour, but contain no refined sugar or artificial sweeteners. They are flavoured with 100% natural ingredients.
The company’s classic Tonic Water is light and fresh. It pairs well with the growing number of craft gins, allowing you to taste their subtle differences. Alternatively it makes a great standalone soft drink garnished with a large wedge of citrus fruit.
