Ale 8 1
Ale 8 1 (ginger ale) was first bottled in Kentucky, USA in 1926.
The ingredients of the drink are similar to that of Coca-cola (although Ale 8 1 has a slightly higher level of caffeine).
Here's what the company says about their peculiar name:
The product was launched July 13, 1926, and Wainscott sponsored one of America’s first “slogan” contests at the Clark County Fair. “A Late One,” the winning entry, was a pun adopted for its description as the latest thing in soft drinks.
