Excel bottling produces flavored soda through a variety of products using cane sugar, returnable bottles through vintage bottling equipment. Their most popular soft drink, Ski, was added in 1961 and accounts for a good portion of soda produced. You’ll find the complete lineup with the characteristics of each soda when you click the soda button.
Besides our bottled soda, Excel offers a great lineup of fountain drinks available through a variety of restaurants. The syrups for both bottled and soda fountain concentrates are selected from different extract houses to provide us with the best flavors in the market. We blend and mix flavors in our own unique way. What’s more, for our non-diet drinks, we use only 100% pure cane sugar for our sweetener. And the tartness of our flavored drinks comes from fruit acids such as citric and malic. These flavors are also protected with benzoate of soda. For carbonation, we use a dual filter system which removes any sediment and chlorination from the municipal water supply. Each flavor requires a different level of carbonation: soda is carbonated with CO2dissolved in water, which provides some additional tartness. The Dixie Filler has both a syruper and capper located along a dial. After due precise amount of syrup is added to the bottle, it is filled with carbonated water and then capped.
