Excel bottling produces a variety of flavored sodas using cane sugar, returnable bottles, and vintage bottling equipment. Their most popular soft drink, Ski, was added in 1961. You’ll find the complete lineup of sodas at excelbottling.com/soda or click here to purchase online.
Besides 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 CO2 dissolved in water, which provides some additional tartness. The Dixie Filler has both a syrup and capper located along with a dial. After the precise amount of syrup is added to the bottle, it is filled with carbonated water and then capped.
