Canada Dry

For more than 100 years, Canada Dry has been best known for its ginger ale, but Canada Dry also has other soft drinks and mixes. Canada Dry has its origins in Canada.

The “Dry” in the brand’s name refers to the drink not being sweet, as in a dry wine. When John J. McLaughlin, who first formulated “Canada Dry Pale Ginger Ale”, originally created his new soft drink, it was far less sweet than other ginger ales available at the time; as such, he called it “dry”.
