Maker 7 Up

Maker Details 7 Up was created by Charles Leiper Grigg, who launched his St. Louis based company The Howdy Corporation in 1920. Grigg came up with the formula for a lemon-lime soft drink in 1929. The product, originally named "Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda", was launched two weeks before the Wall Street Crash of 1929. It contained lithium citrate, a mood-stabilizing drug, until 1950.It was one of a number of patent medicine products popular in the late-19th and early-20th centuries.
