When Ken Graham moved to London in 2012, he was immediately homesick for the kinds of craft soda he grew up with in his home state of Colorado. After years of having his family ship him his favourite root beer, he decided to start making his own. Soda Folk burst onto the seen in 2015 with their Root Beer and Cream Soda, bringing the taste of the US to the UK. Now, they’ve launched two additions to the range, the deliciously tart Soda Folk Cherry Soda and the refreshing Soda Folk Orange Soda. Perhaps the best thing about these new additions is that they both have no added sugar, meaning they have around half the sugar of a regular cola.
