The Coca-Cola Company will be launching a new drink in Japan that includes alcohol with sparkling water and flavoring. This will be the first time the company is offering an alcoholic drink in Japan. Coca-Cola keeps trying out new products. In 2016, it introduced nearly two new products globally per day. In Japan, the company launches about 100 new products every year.
Coca-Cola was invented in the United States in 1886 by a pharmacist named John Pemberton (image). Pemberton initially sold the drink for medicinal purposes, and claimed that it cured a few diseases. A man called Asa Candler bought the formula of the drink and went on to create the Coca-Cola Company in 1892.
