New Product: Three Cents Sodas

In Defense of Bubbles 

What happens when a graduate of computer science meets an economics and business major, a marketer and a business graduate in a bar? 


A scientific explosion of bubbles! 


As they shared a similar lifestyle and career orientation, they found that they also shared one passion – to mix the perfect drinks. After getting together to discuss ideals and visions, they soon realised that there was a products missing from the bar market and became determined to invent it themselves. They needed to create a product that could balance the ingredients of a cocktail or a long drink while bringing out its flavours and aromas and still maintain its fizziness. They slipped into a fizz crazes frenzy of studying, testing and experimenting to know the ins and outs of carbonation and that all important bubble. 

When creating the sodas, the founders would attend Darcy O’Neill seminars and red books about carbonations such as Fix the Pumps. After doing their research and advanced reading, the journey of bubbles mesmerised them all, especially during the time of the Great Depression when soda bars became at the height of fashion. Soda fountains were invented, based on caronated water with syrup added to enhance the flavour. The plain carbonated water was the cheapest drink anyone could get at two cents, and was therefore called the two Cents Plain. With the syrup, it was three cents and from there the name was born. 

The Three Cents Artisinal Beverage range is a line of premium beverages made from all natural ingredients with no preservatived and no artificial colouring. The carbonated water is made at a very high temperature to ensure long lasting carbonation and flavour.
