Yacht Club Bottling Works is a family owned and operated local manufacturer. The facility opened in 1915 with the goal of bringing a premium quality beverage to Rhode Island. A lot has changed over the last 100 years, but Yacht Club, The Official Soda and Water Company of Rhode Island, is still dedicated to providing premium beverages to Rhode Island and surrounding areas.
Please Note: Yacht Club will not be accepting returned bottles until further notice as we repair our bottle washer.
Yacht Club uses only glass bottles for carbonated drinks. Glass, because it keeps the contents fresh and pure unlike any other container. Only returnable glass bottles are used, which can be returned for a credit. All bottles returned are sterilized then reused. (Reuse is the best form of recycling). Every bottle returned saves enough energy to power a standard light bulb for 100 hours. Last year alone, with the Think Green Save the Bottles Campaign, Yacht Club reused over 5,000 cases (120,000+ bottles) keeping them out of our local landfill.
Every drink produced begins with natural artesian water from an artesian well drilled through the bedrock 180 ft below the building, in 1923. The water is natural mineral water and has exceptional characteristics for carbonation. Its natural temperature is 45 degrees, which allows carbonation without the use of cooling towers that can be bad for the environment. Also, the water naturally accepts 5.5 volumes of carbonation without alteration. This means NO SALT ADDED for carbonation.
All syrups are made onsite with only extra fine granular pure cane sugar mixed with natural artesian water. Never High Fructose Corn Syrup! Pure cane sugar is triple the cost of HFCS but well worth it. When the syrup is fully mixed, the finest extracts and flavorings are added to make a truly unique drink. Yacht Club also has a large selection of sugar free options including diet soda and naturally flavored sparkling water. You will notice when you drink a Yacht Club Soda that it is clean, smooth and genuinely refreshing.
