Provenance - Franklin & Sons

Our Story

Franklin & Sons was founded in London, 1886, by the three Franklin brothers: Albert, Frederick and George. Confectioners by trade, they began creating soft drinks when their father returned from a trip to America, inspired by the innovative, carbonated drinks he tried there. Over 130 years later, we stay true to the family’s passion for authentic, great tasting drinks, crafted with the Franklin brothers’ attention to quality and flavour and today’s consumer in mind.

With something for every occasion, we have a range of tonics and mixers, sparkling soft drinks, infused sodas and ready-to-serve alcoholic drinks.


Taking inspiration from the founding brothers, Franklins has continued its search for quality by sourcing the finest ingredients, hand-picking them at their best. Franklin & Sons use local fruit, roots and herbs, to ensure we support British agriculture where possible and provide the finest tasting drinks.


Franklin & Sons has been the forefront of innovation since the Victorian era. This ethos is continued today through carefully constructed recipes that combine exceptional ingredients that each undergoes a unique process. Each recipe only ever uses natural flavours, extracts and colours and never includes sweeteners or preservatives.
