Bundaberg sodas (or flavored sparkling drinks, as the bottle says) are brewed and bottled in Queensland Australia. They produce a good number of different flavors of soda so I’m glad that I’ve been able to find them locally. The first one up for review is the Lemon Lime & Bitters soda. The eye-pleasing bottle advertises that this is made with the aromatic Bundaberg bitters. Upon first tasting the soda, I was pleasantly surprised by the crisp, authentic taste of lemon/lime that hit my tongue. The ingredients state that real lime and lemon juice (from concentrate), which would explain the nice, natural flavor. The soda finishes with a root-like flavor that reminded me of ginger or cinnamon. The bitters in the soda are made from tropical spices and gentian root which helps give this drink a distinctive flavor that separates it from other lemon lime sodas. Although summer is still a few months away, this is a drink I can definitely picture myself enjoying at a barbecue on a hot Saturday.

    You really have to try their ginger beer, it’s naturally brewed and is what they are famous for down here. That and their rum, although I wouldn’t recommend the rum so much… The town is located in a region that is big for its sugar cane. There is a long tradition of independent soft drink manufacturers here in Australia and my grandmother tells me that there used to be different soft drink companies in most every town. Others to look out for are Kirk’s soft drinks, Cascade sparkling apple juice, Passiona, Solo, Crystal home delivered soft drinks and Ecks to name a few.
