Who would've thought? 1930s Thailand as soft drink hot spot. That kind of history tends to get overlooked but that kind of collecting must've gone on everywhere....I remember being fascinated with my grandad's haul of beer bottles of different brands, even beer mats. Look forward to you guys uncovering more.

My home country of Scotland also had, until just over ten years ago, a thriving independent soft drinks industry - with every area having small firms producing excellent sodas. However, a combination of the marketing power of certain international giants and the practices of the supermarkets did for them. Surely, there's now a niche market for them where enthusiasts would pay a premium for something a little more original!

I believe those hotels have a certain "je ne sais quoi." Which is French for a "one-of-a-kind guest experience that you want to write home to your friends about.
