The Scottish iron brew drink to boost your energy since 1901

Quench your thirst with a gulp from a bottle of this Irn Bru tonic-like soft drink that includes caffeine and sugar content to jumpstart your system as you do a long hard day's work. Irn Bru was first founded by Robert Barr in 1875 in Falkirk, Scotland. It was positioned in the market as "aerated water" and was introduced in 1901 as a refreshing carbonated soft drink called "Strachan's Brew" by AG Barr, the manufacturer of Irn Bru. In 1946, Irn Bru was primarily branded as Iron Brew but was rejected due to technicalities, Hence, the Irn Bru brand was born in July of that year.

With sugar in this product's content, Irn Bru spikes up your body's power and stamina to continue the day without a hint of fatigue. Irn Bru also eases an unruly stomach and reduces the feeling of shakiness. Not only that a bottle of Irn Bru is an energizer, but this brand is also known as a hangover cure although there was not enough scientific basis to prove it. People's experiences had been strong testimonies to this claim.

A bottle of Irn Bru is a brand that will definitely keep you going.

Why is Irn Bru Scotland's national drink?

As famous as the kilts, bagpipes, and haggis of Scotland, Irn Bru's bottle is a well-loved Scottish drink in a distinguished design of its own bearing the orange and blue color combination. The use of colors is derived from the Barr family's tartan with the pattern revised in 1997 and registered in The Scottish Register of Tartans.

Barrs' Irn Bru has been a part of the Scottish culture with this soft drink representing one of Scotland's iconic symbols. This love for Irn Bru started in 1901 when steelworkers at the Glasgow Central Station drank too many a bottle of beer to relieve their thirst. AG Barr soothes these hardworking people's need for a revitalizing beverage, uplifting their energy level without getting tipsy while taking on their heavy job. Since then, Irn Bru becomes the favorite drink in Scotland. So when they released an advertising campaign called "The Other National Drink" first mounted on a billboard at the Glasgow Central Station, there had been minimal protests against the tagline.

This brand is so successful in Scotland that it overtook the top spot in the country away from world-leading carbonated soft drink products. The Scottish market sells a bottle of Irn Bru faster than the speeding bullet and even retails 20 cans per second in other countries!

In recent years, the present logo is revised to portray strength and an industrial feel that is nostalgic to the first time Irn Bru was launched into the steel working sector.

What does Irn Bru taste like? Discover its unique flavor

Each bottle of Irn Bru boasts an original recipe that only three people know. Its mixture includes 32 flavors, which Twitter-verse calls the orange flavor but not pertaining to the fruit. Its distinct taste is so complex that it is perceived to carry a combination of sweet, citrus and deep blackcurrant notes, zesty and cream soda fusion, or as sparkling bubblegum.

Irn Bru's one-of-a-kind flavor also complements other soft drinks such as root beer or ginger ale. You can even pour Irn Bru into an ice-filled glass, stirred with dollops of lemon juice or Tabasco sauce! It is also an excellent mix or chaser drink for your whiskey, Irish cream liquor, or any of your favorite alcoholic beverages.
