Top 10: Where are they now?

31st March, 2014 by Lauren Eads

From ill-conceived brand names to impractical containers, dozens of drinks have fallen out of favour for all kinds of reasons over the years and made their way to the drinks graveyard in the sky.

breaking-wine-glass

Dozens of once hailed global drinks have fallen foul of changing tastes, budgetary cuts or simply their own misfortune over the years.

In the name of nostalgia, the drinks business team trawled through its collective memory to come up with some of the world’s best known drinks which have disappeared from the market.

Some might remind you of a long lost favourite beverage or spark a long forgotten memory from the dim and distant 80s, while others might be best off forgotten all all together.

Scroll through to see some of our most memorable demised drinks brands…

    When I used to be a bartender many moons ago, we used to run mini competitions behind the bar to gauge which beverage did the best job of cleaning up our loose change. Drop a 2 pence piece into a glass of Hofmeister and see how fast it gets clean. Comes up lovely!

    As a kid in the late 60’s my family toured the wine country of SA. I fell in live with Borossa Pearl. I found it once at the grocery store in Corvaillis Oregon in the mid 70’s for $1 a bottle and thought I’d hit the jackpot. I am not a wine drinker now but would be if I had a supply of Borossa Pearl.
