Coca‑Cola is the world's favourite soft drink, and people have been enjoying it since 1886.

Coca‑Cola was invented by Dr John S Pemberton and it first went on sale at Jacob's Pharmacy in Atlanta, Georgia. It was actually Dr Pemberton's bookkeeper, Frank M Robinson, who invented the now world-famous red-and-white logo with its special Spencerian script.

Coca‑Cola is now the most recognised trademark in the world and is even thought to be the most widely understood word in the world after ‘OK’.

Since its introduction to the island of Ireland in 1939, Coca‑Cola remains the country’s best selling retail brand
