And what would be better on a hot summer day than a nice cold bottle of ginger ale? Blenheim Ginger Ale, made and bottled in South Carolina, has been around since 1903. Unfortunately, since so many of the ingredients in this unique blend are secret, they’re not able to show the actual process of making the ale. However, you can get the idea of how it’s made and you’ll see how it’s bottled. And, when it’s all done, you can either buy the “Hot” or “Not as Hot” varieties.

Thanks again to the folks at South Carolina Educational TV for another in their “Eye Wonder” series. Click here to see how famous Blenheim Ginger Ale is made and feel the manufacturing vibe.
