Lurvill’s Delight was a popular carbonated soft drink in Wales between 1896 and 1910. Invented by twin brother residents of Ynyshir, Harold and Iolo Lewis, the carbonated mixture included stinging nettles, dock leaves and was infused with juniper berry extract. The profits made from the drink were used to pay for 150 coalminers and their families from the village to emigrate to Pittsburgh and Denver in the USA. The drink ceased production in 1910 due to a shortage of dock leaves in the local area.
A dry refreshing blend of Welsh spring water, botanical extracts and natural infusions. Free from artificial flavours, colours and preservatives, with no added sugar. Our botanical sodas are inspired by that original recipe crested by Harold and Iolo.
