A New Addition

I've recently acquired some new additions to my bottle collection, so i thought i'd have a play with one of them tonight.


This is an old Lucozade Bottle, with original screw stopper.

And now a very brief History : "Glucozade" was first manufactured in 1927 by William Owen, a chemist based at Barras Bridge, Newcastle who experimented for several years to provide a source of energy for those who were sick with common illnesses, like the common cold or influenza. It became available throughout Britain for use in hospitals under the name Glucozade. This was changed to Lucozade in 1929, and Beecham's acquired the product in 1938. By the early 1950s, Lucozade was the source of half of the company's profits.

In 1953, a factory for the production of Lucozade products was opened in Brentford, England, which, until 2004, had an iconic sign seen on the side of the M4 motorway (now in Gunnersbury Park Museum). Local people were reportedly upset when the sign was removed. A new and identical sign replaced the old sign in 2010.

I bought a bottle earlier this year, just out of curiosity.
Had a feeling it did not quite taste the same as when I was a kid, aged circa 10, 11, 12
