South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Dillon County Photos  |  Blenheim’s Ginger Ale

Blenheim’s Ginger Ale is a South Carolina icon. It was invented in 1903 in the town of Blenheim by Dr. C. R. May to help his patients drink the local medicinal spring waters.

Bought in 1993 by the Schafer family, Blenheim’s is now made and bottled in a modern plant next to the South of the Border entertainment complex. There are three variants of Blenheim’s Ginger Ale: Hot (pink cap), Not As Hot (gold cap), and Diet (white cap). All are spicy enough for most, so consider yourself warned!

Blenheim Ginger Ale #3 or #5…the best tasting Ginger Ale ever if you love “real ginger”. I live in KY and have it shipped to me. It’s that good!

Pour Blenheim Ginger Ale over vanilla ice cream! Best ice cream float that you’ll ever have.

I help my daddy, Robert Brock at Brock’s Grocery in Blenheim sell so many of these drinks. A lot of folks traveling to the beach would stop and ask for them. Great memories!
