1886 Cola - Franklin & Sons


Spicy sweetness from 12 different herbs and spices is balanced by vanilla, rich Columbian coffee beans and the rose-like aromas of the African kola nut, a classic cola.
Our classic 1886 Cola also makes for the perfect mixer, and is available in 200ml with a higher carbonation level to bring out the best in the finest spirits.



Columbian coffee beans are known for their mild and well-balanced flavour, which complement the Kola nut seed’s rose aroma. Vanilla brings the classic cola flavour, combined with Staffordshire spring water and British sugar beet.
