History

Eugene Peter Desnoes and Thomas Hargreaves Geddes formed a partnership in 1918 to make carbonated beverages. Desnoes & Geddes also sold imported liquor and beer until establishing the Surrey Brewery in Kingston to produce their own Red Strip beer in 1928. In 1966 a larger soft drink bottling plant was added in Montego Bay. In 1999 Desnoes & Geddes sold the soda pop bottling side of its business to the Pepsi-Cola Jamaica Bottling Co. which continues to produce the D&G brands under license.

Review

This has the friendly smell of pineapple but where did the taste go? That bright Yellow #5 coloring tries to reassure you, but there isn't much of a pineapple flavor here, either natural or artificial. Instead its kind of like an artificial Sprite lemon-lime drink, a bit 2-dimensional.

Not as refreshing as a good pineapple soda should be.
