Place of Origin

Maker Schweppes London England

Maker Details A jeweler by trade, Jacob Schweppe's interest in science led him to the novel art of infusing water with carbon dioxide. Working from a Swiss lab in 1783, Schweppe patented his special process for carbonating water. His achievement was exceptional, but getting the carbonation into the water was only half the challenge. Keeping it in was the tricky part. Schweppe's true stroke of genius came from his development of a bottle that could retain the carbonation. This started the soft drink business. Schweppe and his business partners soon moved from Switzerland to London. As the British Empire grew, so did Schweppes. Schweppes merged with the Cadbury Group, a well-known confectionery company, to form Cadbury Schweppes plc in 1969. Today, Schweppes is part of Plano, Texas-based Dr Pepper Snapple Group, an integrated refreshment beverage business marketing more than 50 beverage brands throughout North America.
