Bon Accord secures juicy deal with supermarket chain Morrisons


The great taste of Bon Accord’s innovative soft drinks are now available to even more Scottish consumers after the company signed a new deal to supply their unique, naturally sweetened range to Morrisons supermarkets.

A selection of the best-selling Bon Accord lines were launched into Morrisons Arbroath store at the end of 2021 and, following the success of this store, the Bon Accord range has been rolled out to 10 stores across Fife, Dundee, Edinburgh and Livingston.

100% naturally sweetened with real fruit juice and organic coconut nectar, Bon Accord contains no refined sugar or artificial sweeteners, making them the only soft drinks company to use this innovative, natural way of sweetening their drinks. 

Perfect for the health-conscious and environmentally-aware consumer, they’re sold in recyclable glass bottles, enhancing the company’s natural green credentials.

Bon Accord co-founder Karen Knowles said: “We’re delighted that now even more customers will have the opportunity to buy our fizzy drinks. Our whole ethos is to inject a bit more joy into juice and that’s why we are committed to creating products that are not only tasty and good value but also a healthier option for our customers. With our 100% sweet by nature range, we’re aiming to help health-focused consumers take small steps to reduce refined sugar in their diet and enjoy a delicious alcohol-free alternative.”

Bosses at the family-owned firm have also had a bit of fun compiling their own tasting notes, suggesting how the sparkling drinks can best accompany food. Forget a robust red – anyone for blue cheese with Rhubarb Soda?

There are five delicious varieties from the Bon Accord family that will be available to buy in Morrisons:

  • Rhubarb Soda - 750ml bottle: Crisp and refreshing, with real rhubarb flavour, it’s a bestseller for a reason. 
  • Cloudy Lemonade - 750ml bottle: Tangy and tart with a zesty zin, exactly how lemonade should taste. This Cloudy Lemonade has all the hallmarks of a classic drink. 
  • Ginger Beer - 750ml bottle: Made with real ginger for a flavour that gently tingles and builds without overwhelming.

Rhubarb Soda and Ginger Beer will also be available to purchase in a handy 4 x 275ml pack.

Angus Bell, Senior Local Buying Manager, Scotland comments, “We are excited to introduce Bon Accord into 10 Morrisons stores in the East of Scotland as part of our Local Foodmakers programme. 

“Many will remember the iconic Bon Accord delivery lorries and I'm sure that the reinvented, healthier and naturally sweetened range will be a big hit with our local customers. Morrison's Local Foodmakers programme searches for local food and drink makers of known and locally loved products and we have started working with over 100 new local suppliers through the programme, supporting local communities and economies."

Bon Accord Soft Drinks are delighted to be listed in Aldi stores for the third time in the last 12 months. As proud recognition of Scottish produce, Aldi have listed their favourite Scottish brands and the Bon Accord customer favourites of Rhubarb Soda and Ginger Beer (275ml) will be available to buy alongside your weekly shop from 13 January. 

Having previously sold out in-store, consumer demand is expected to be extremely high for the unique, premium drinks. 

Bon Accord soft drinks have a place in the hearts of Scottish consumers as a brand that was first introduced in 1903. Following a refresh in 2016 by the founder's great-great granddaughter, the brand has found steady growth in the premium soft drinks market. 


Bon Accord Founder Karen Knowles said:

“We are delighted to once again be listed in Aldi stores across Scotland and continue to develop the strong relationship we have with one of the key retailers in the Scottish supermarket sector. This is an exciting time for us as a brand and customers have been so supportive of our growing retail presence.


We offer soft drinks and mixers that meet the desire for a healthier alternative to those that were previously available. All of our soft drinks are naturally sweetened and our unique way of sweetening Bon Accord means never having to compromise on taste or worry about quality of ingredients.”


Bon Accord co-founder Nathan Burrough said:

“Habits around drinking are changing and a growing number of people are embracing alcohol-free drinks. We’re proud to offer drinks that are more exciting than standard, sugar-laden juice. 

Despite being a crowded market, Bon Accord are confident about their offering:

 “While we are a smaller producer than many other premium soft drinks companies, we’re confident that our flavours and quality can hold their own in the supermarket."
