London in the 1920s

Dust had settled from WW I and the Roaring Twenties began – it was the time when industrial production and women’s suffrage modernised the English society. The jazz age blossomed, young Londoners began to change their long accustomed ways and started spending their nights in clubs.

While the invention of vinyl disks revolutionised music and dance, whiskey-based cocktails soon became a favorite among the young Londoners. Carbonated drinks became more and more popular, prompting Sparklets Ltd. in London to launch the production of their C-Type Sparklets London Soda Siphon.

Soda culture quickly seduced all of the United Kingdom. Soda Siphons were omnipresent in cigar- & jazz clubs and dance halls where Gin & Tonic or Whiskey-Soda were served. Our Sparklets London Soda Siphon became the symbol of an era.

A hand restored original

Each one of these soda siphons is an original from the 1920s. It was manufactured to meet high standards towards quality and durability.

All spare parts used during the restoration are either originals or were custom made for this purpose. This way we ensure that the original state of the soda siphon is preserved to the highest possible degree.

    This is a so-called C-Type Soda Siphon, which means the bulb holder has to stay in place during use. The design of the Sparklets London Soda Siphon shaped the Soda Siphon as we know and use it to this day. In the early 1900s, Sparklets had devised and patented a system to use CO2 bulbs instead of a stationary filling system, perfected in the 1920s C-Type Soda Siphon. The mouth-blown glass bottle was manufactured in Czechoslovakia between 1920 and 1930. All metallic parts were manufactured in the UK and the Siphon was assembled at the Sparklets factory in London.

    Today, we find the Sparklets London Soda Siphons we restore mostly in the UK and other countries of the Commonwealth. This is owed to their popularity during colonial times where the upper class made use of the antibacterial effect of carbonisation to enjoy clean water and refreshing Gin Tonics in tropical climates.
