First stop: Drink....
Did you know that Ribena was first made in Bristol?
H.W Carter & Company started making citrus fruit based drinks in 1872. With the advancement of the Second World War, oranges and lemons quickly became in short supply and Carter's scientists came up with an ingenious solution: a concentrated black current juice which was quickly named 'Ribena'. This drink was then launched for the first time in 1938, being distributed first in hospitals and schools, before being manufactured commercially within the first few years.
