5 Most Favorite Ginger Ale Brands, Ranked

There is a possibility that ginger ale brands, which have been consumed in various parts of the world for hundreds of years, may not have any scientifically proven benefits for gastrointestinal health. There is widespread agreement regarding ginger's beneficial effects on the intestines; however, a recent in-depth investigation into the subject by The Atlantic found that the jury is still out on whether ginger ale itself can provide anything other than a traditional placebo surge in the brain.
Despite this, a recent surge of "healthy" ginger ales have been making their way into the soda aisles as the wellness trend continues to permeate every sector of the economy. Scroll down to see the list of the six most favorite Ginger Ale Brands.

#1. Bruce Cost Unfiltered Is One Of The Best Ginger Ale Brands, But Not In Top 5

Bruce Cost is popular among Brooklyn's upscale bagel caf├ęs and coffee shops. It says on the label that it is a "proud descendant of the original soft drink," whatever that means. Ingredients include carbonated water, organic cane sugar, 100% fresh ginger, and citric acid. Sugar? The smaller font says 37 grams. That's four more than a similar-sized Sprite bottle. Ginger ale is still soda, even with raw cane sugar and no high fructose corn syrup. Bruce Cost tastes much like Brooklyn Crafted, so I wondered how the two could live on a yoga class and avocado dispensary shelves.

5. Polar

This supermarket stalwart isn't as beloved as other old-school ginger ales. Polar, a New England-based soft drink company, founded in 1882, makes a well-balanced ginger ale. It's as sweet as Canada Dry but fizzes in your throat, blasting carbonation into your sinuses and nostrils (I love that). Polar's one-liter bottle is in the seltzer aisle. Polar makes sodas, fizzy waters, and soft drinks, but I nearly always grab for Polar seltzers before Polar ginger ale.

4. Blue Sky

Blue Sky, founded in 1971 and named after the New Mexico sky, is known for its "genuine" and "authentic" flavors and focuses on New Mexican heritage. The ginger punch is intense. Blue Sky is a delightful soda, albeit not the kind you'd want to drink right after recovering from the stomach virus. The drink has a refreshing, unique aftertaste that lingers in the throat and is noticeable enough to encourage repeat purchases. Fun facts, you can use these Ginger ale cans to make some good foods.

3. Fever-Tree

Mixologists prefer Fever-Tree as a carbonated mixer. You've seen little bottles at upscale gastropubs. Excellent ginger ale. It's practically golden, syrupy, and has a new-age ginger kick. The company's website says it employs a "special blend of three of the world's finest naturally sourced gingers" and spring water to get its rich flavor. Fever-Tree is great in cocktails. With a distinct flavor that's fine on its own, it won't overpower a whiskey or rum. I'll add bourbon.

2. Ginger Ale Brands Schweppes

Schweppes is one of Coca-Cola Great Britain's oldest brands, along with Canada Dry and Seagrams. It is less fizzy and has a more subdued flavor than Canada Dry. Schweppes ginger-ale is perfect for a churning tummy or a night when you're not drinking. Schweppes coined "Schweppshire" during the Mad Men period of advertising. It had its coat of arms, language, and decade-long promotional campaign. "Schweppsylvania" and "Schwepperverscence" were also popular.

1. Canada Dry

I love this century-old ginger ale. Everyone remembers the bubbly feeling of gulping a Canada Dry, with its sweet, exquisitely balanced flavor rush that covers your tongue in pinprick bubbles. Canada Dry was a popular Prohibition mixer. I think it's hilarious that the official website calls it "the champagne of sodas." Julie Fletcher, a real-life Seinfeld character, sued Canada Dry for not having ginger on the ingredients list. The $11.2 million class-action settlement was a significant news item. Most amusing? You're eligible for compensation if you bought Canada Dry between 1/1/2013 and 12/19/2018.
