Schweppes is a beverage brand that is sold around the world. It includes a variety of lemonade, carbonated waters and ginger ales. 

In the late eighteenth century, Johann Jacob Schweppe developed a process to manufacture carbonated mineral water based on the discoveries of Joseph Priestley. Schweppe founded the Schweppes Company in Geneva in 1783 to sell carbonated water. In 1792, he moved to London to develop the business there. In 1843, Schweppes commercialised Malvern Water at the Holywell Spring in the Malvern Hills, which was to become a favourite of the British Royal Family. 

Mainstay Schweppes products include ginger ale (1870), bitter lemon (1957), and tonic water (the oldest soft drink in the world – 1771).
