Our History

The Double “O” essence is made up of more than just our best ingredients. It’s our rich history founded in the heart of Cape Town and our family’s commitment to bringing you a soft- drink filled with Double the flavour and Double the fun.

Our Story

The Double “O” story goes all the way back to the heart of District Six, before the area’s relocation policy, where we first bottled and distributed our soft-drinks in the legendary glass bottles and wooden crates. Our expansion began in 1971 when we purchased the Coo-ee plant in Lansdowne, which still forms part of our organisation to this day.

Since the beginning of our journey, the Double “O” family has shown its commitment and dedication to bringing South Africa an authentic and delicious soft- drink. We’ve worked continuously to produce a quality soft- drink that suits both taste and pockets.
