BAD Cola is a community drink developed by our pals at Company Drinks and made at our East London Soda Works.
Company Drinks is a community space and social enterprise based in Barking and Dagenham, where we make drinks with and for each other. Company Drinks started out in 2014 to bring people and communities back together through picking flowers, fruit and herbs, reconnecting with nature, local green spaces and the nearby countryside. They produce and sell drinks in a totally local economy, with sales being ploughed back into funding the next year’s activities.
We’ve known and worked with Company Drinks since 2014, helping to take the produce they collect and turn it into pop for them to sell. This year, we're delighted to be working with them again to help create all kinds of wonderful drinks for them, including this iconic Barking and Dagenham Cola (BAD Cola).
BAD Cola was designed and mixed by children and young adults at Company Drinks Pavilion in Barking Park. The flavour was created by Cube-Cola from an open-source recipe engineered and released under the GNU General Public License. Expect a more traditional level of sweetness than in our classic Cola, with top notes from the essential oils including Lavender, Nutmeg and Cassia!
We'll be donating 20% from every sale of BAD Cola via our online store to Company Drinks to help fund their future projects for young people living in East London.
