Canada Dry is best known for its ginger ale, but also manufactures a number of other soft drinks and mixers. Although Canada Dry originated in its namesake country, Canada, it is now produced in many countries around the globe, and is very popular in the United States and the Middle East. Canada Dry is marketed as "Schweppes Canada Dry" in the UK and Ireland.History
In 1890, Canadian pharmacist and chemist John J. McLaughlin of Enniskillen, Ontario opened a carbonated water plant in Toronto. In 1904, he created Canada Dry Pale Ginger Ale
. When McLaughlin began shipping his product to New York in 1919, it became so popular that he opened a plant in Manhattan shortly thereafter. After J.J.'s death, the company was run briefly by Sam. P. D. Saylor and Associates
(they bought the business from Sam McLaughlin) and Canada Dry Ginger Ale, Inc.
Canada Dry's popularity as a mixer began during Prohibition, when its flavor helped mask the taste of homemade liquor. In the 1930s, Canada Dry expanded worldwide, and from the 1950s onward, the company introduced a larger number of products. The Chief Chemist from 1940s through 1970s was Franklin M. Gray, from Toronto, Canada. Today, Canada Dry is owned by Dr Pepper Snapple Group, but the ginger ale bottles often bear a map of Canada as part of the beverage's logo.
