Stratford Sodas is a premium brand of award-winning mixers, made with the finest ingredients and unique flavour combinations. Our passion for all things rum inspired us to create a line of mixers that enhance the flavour of rum, and elevate the drinking experience, without overshadowing or over sweetening the rum like other drinks currently available.
Katie, as a bartender, fell in love with rum but hated how colas, big brand ginger beers and tonic waters overpowered rum, and the only other options were drinking neat or faffing with a cocktail. She found this particularly frustrating when drinking small brand rums who have such unique hand-crafted flavours that were just getting hidden, a feeling echoed when talking to these brands who recommended drinking their rums neat as they didn’t want them “ruined”.
Our other founder, Dan, luckily was on hand to fix the SodaStream and start getting creative in the kitchen with Katie trying and testing different ingredients and recipes. Over a year later, after one marriage proposal, more than 50 recipe attempts, and litres of rum we had a drink that we loved. In late 2021 we launched Stratford Sodas and have since sold thousands of bottles to the British public.
There is no wrong way to mix and pair your favourite rums with our flavours because our founders Katie and Dan created the range to mix with any and all rum, the combos just come down to personal preferences. Each of our flavours is a unique and refreshing taste, low sugar and low carbonation.
• Citrus – The base of all our mixers, our secret citrus base balances perfectly with any rum to create a long daiquiri type of drink. Recently awarded 1-Star Great Taste Award!
• Tropical – Our 2-Star Great Taste Award winning pineapple & coconut has delicious fruity notes which create a classic but elegant rum pairing. Also seen and loved on TV by James Martin & Alan Titchmarsh.
• Hedgerow – An unconventional but tasty pairing with rum floral rose and succulent blackberry, created as a nod to Katie’s mixologist past and her favourite own creation cocktail – The Hedgerow Daiquiri.
• Spiced – A true drink experience. Our twist on the familiar Ginger Beer adds the tingle of cinnamon to the warmth of ginger.
