Way back in 1884, Ramune was founded in the Japanese city of Kobe by Scottish pharmacist Alexander Cameron Sim, earning its name through the Japanese borrowing of the word “lemon.” It quickly gained popularity for its delicious taste, and over a hundred years later, is now cemented as one of Japan’s “summer soda’s.”

The drink is clear in colour, but comes in a range of different flavours! It’s original, signature “Ramune” flavour is lemon and lime, but comes in fruity favourites such as melon, strawberry and grape! You can view our Ramune range here.

Bottle Design

One of Japanese Ramune soda’s most unique traits is its bottle shape, known as Codd-neck bottles. Made of glass and sealed with a marble, they are usually described as hard to drink the first time around. The marble is pushed into the neck of the bottle and rattles around, giving Ramune soda the nickname “marble soda.” Codd-neck bottles have fallen out of fashion in recent years, making Japanese Ramune soda that bit more unique!
