The History Of Coca-Cola

The creator of Coca-Cola is John Pemberton. He is a druggist. Do you believe that the most famous drink creator is a druggist. But it is true.

Pemberton's original creation was a cocawine, highly popular in 1884 Columbus, Georgia. But when prohibition was passed the following year, he re-worked the formula into a non-alcoholic drink that used coca leaves and kola nuts for flavoring. And Coca-Cola was born in 1886.He first sold his new product through a pharmacy.

In 1887, Pemberton sold rights to the formula, to Asa Candler, who then incorporated a company as Coca-Cola. But Pemberton then sold the rights a second time, while his son Charlie started to produce a similar drink.

Candler was afraid to totally remove the coca from his formula, because he believed the only way he could hang onto the patent for the name, was to keep producing it with the ingredients that had given the drink life as Coca-Cola.

In 1902, the actual amount of coca extract in the syrup, had been reduced to 1/400th of a grain. It would not be eliminated entirely, until 1929.
