Schweppes Bitter Lemon

My dad used to drink it all the time. Recently I was in the Netherlands and had one for the first time in about 20 years. So refreshing. But on my return I realized that I haven't seen it in a store here in years. Is it still available in the states (I'm in PA)?

  1. It's from the UK. Limited export.

    Might start here and google around for British foodstuffs stores in the US that import et cet.

    1. I can get it sporadically here in IN. Love the stuff. It is kind of an on and off thing, usualy found in larger liquor stores. I wish the Bitter Orange was available.

      1. Soda Pop Stop out of Los Angeles carries Schweppes Bitter Lemon

        They will ship it to you.

        1. We have this stuff in Spain, too--just the right amount of sweet and bitter.

          It's funny, I thought I remembered us having it in the US at one point, but I figured my mind was playing tricks on me...

          1. My local A&P/Food Emporium carries it here in Westchester County, NY. I have it often. I haven't seen the bitter orange in decades, I think I last saw it in the late 60's when I was a kid.

              I just realized it is the Canada Dry bitter lemon at the A&P.
