    Are Barrís the only independent juice company still going in Scotland?

    When we've had a takeaway with the in-laws up in Aberdeenshire, we used to get a free bottle of this weird red stuff that seems to be from a local company. It was rank!

    Also, Bon accord are open again, but I think they're selling higher end mixers now

    I think you mean Moray Cup.

    That was discontinued a couple of years ago and the company bought by a Dutch firm. When I lived in Aberdeen folk seemed to love it. It was rank.

    I don't think I've seen any local Lemonade companies on my travels. Names from the past like Thomson Craik in Perth and Strathmore Springs (of Pola Cola fame) are no more.

    There used to be a factory in St Andrews that did one called Angel's Kiss. I loved it, but all I can remember is that it was pineapple mixed with another flavour.

    Solripe, jings, that's a shout. I remembered Bon Accord, Alpine & Globe but complete forgot about Solripe.
    The Globe American Cream Soda was the dogs danglies!

    Was it Alpine that had juice lorries in the late 70s/early 80s as well as Bon Accord?

    Alpine definitely came round our streets in the 80s.

    Aye, it was Bon Accord around the Oxgangs/Colinton Mains area mid 80's with Alpine out at places like Mayfield & Nitten.

    We had both at Kingsknowe/Longstone - but I can't remember if it was at the same time.

    Alpine bottles were great for home brew, wee rubber seal inside the top.

    Anybody remember Larkspur? The milkman used to deliver it.

    Perhaps Juice Terry can help.

    Was just about to mention that. The lemonade that actually made you more thirsty after you drank it.

    It was 20p for like a 2 litre bottle. Perfect for summer days.

    They were certainly competing for your business.

    From what I remember the Alpine lorrie was more regular than Bon Accord - it certainly lasted longer anyway.

    I think Alpine juice was about the same price per bottle that you paid for Solripe or Globe in the grocers, but the Alpine bottles were bigger (maybe 1l instead of 75cl?).

    It all depended on the driver and his van laddies how long they lasted in each street. The driver I remember doing your area was a bit on the lazy side.
    Alpine was either the same or a penny cheaper than Bon Accordbut seemed much cheaper to new buyers as they had a very small deposit on the bottle.
    Maybe even 1.1l.

    Bon Accord were still kicking about a good bit into the 90s in Colinton Mains. We used to get a few bottles every week when I was a bairn. I'd like to try to some Bon Accord, Alpine etc again. In my head it was amazing tasting stuff but I bet it was absolutely rank.

    Was Cresta the one with the polar bear? My memory is of it being like syrup and ridiculously frothy.

    As a young lad my first job was a Saturday job on the Bon Accord lorry. Did Broomhouse, Sighthill and Calders. The tips were excellent, and it made sure I had enough cash to get into Easter Road for the football.

    Bon Accord were still on the go in the mid 90ís in Perth.
    But you know it ain't all about wealth,
    as long as you make a note to .. EXPRESS YOURSELF!

    Remember the bloody awkward size of the Bon Accord bottles, as they were a bugger to try and squeeze into the fridge!
