What is a ramune?

Ramune, an iconic Japanese sparkling drink, is often pronounced "la-moo-nay" in Japan. Its name derives from the English "lemonade", borrowed and adapted to the Japanese language. According to tradition, it was presented by the Scottish pharmacist Alexander Cameron Sim during his stay in Kobe in 1884.

This beverage is packaged in bottles with slender necks, and contains an intriguing feature: a marble inside. This characteristic may raise the question: why this marble? In reality, it serves as a stopper for the bottle, and its mechanism is activated by the pressure of the sparkling water which holds it in place.

The original flavor of Ramune evokes a refreshing marriage of lemon and lime, appreciated for its unique character. However, over time, new flavors have emerged. Fruity flavors such as strawberry, lychee, lemon and blueberry have enriched the market.
