In 1886, Dr. John Pemberton brought a jug of Coca-Cola syrup to a downtown pharmacy, mixed it with carbonated water and sold it for five cents. So, in honor of Coca-Cola’s 125th anniversary this week, we can thank the good doctor for his invention. If not for him, what would we mix our whiskey with?
To celebrate, Coke’s releasing limited-edition anniversary bottles. Shown here is the first-ever Coke bottle, the Hutchinson. You can buy it on its own or as part of a four bottle collector’s set (shown below). Head over to Selfridge’s to get your drink (soft drink, that is) on.
