Natrona Bottling Company's belief is that quality is more important than quantity. We've never, in 112 years, considered sacrificing our age old technique for mass production. Each bottle receives the the same care and attention as we give to our company as a whole.
Every batch of soda is individually mixed and measured by hand, using vintage equipment, and a carbonation process that has been with us since the first sodas rolled off our line, called "pinpoint carbonation". It produces tiny bubbles instead of the larger gaseous bubbles. We use only pure cane sugar, to bring you the same great-tasting and refreshing sodas that small home-town bottlers provided for their communities across the country.
We might be a small company, working out of a modest building, but we know, in our case, the taste of a great soda depends on the love that goes into it.
In 1904, Ed Welsh founded the Natrona Bottling Works. In 1939, John Bowser acquired the company. John's fifteen year old brother, Paul, took a part-time after school job to help out. What started as a teenage job, turned into a lifelong career and love for Paul. Keeping Natrona alive when so many small town bottling operations sold out to larger corporations was his mission. Though Paul is no longer with us, his vision lives on. Today Vito Gerasole continues to run Natrona Bottling Company, with the expert help of office manager, Mary Jane Zdilla, and Master Bottler, Steve Vokish. Together, the Natrona team works endlessly to bring you a product that Paul Bowser would be proud of, and happy to see on the shelves of so many great restaurants, grocery stores, and top-notch distributors.
