Rapscallion Soda

At WatchHouse, we believe in curating a selection of exceptional products to live alongside our coffees, that also reflect our commitment to quality, flavour, and innovation. Amongst these is our carefully chosen offerings, Rapscallion Soda stands out. From Glasgow, Rapscallion Soda crafts fresh fruit sodas designed for grown-ups, highlighting natural flavours by using minimal sugar to create drinks that are better for you, and better for your tastebuds. Their meticulous approach to soda making and unique flavour profiles make them a perfect fit for us at WatchHouse.

Rapscallion Soda’s journey began in 2016, when founder, Gregor harnessed his expertise in wine-making, brewing, distillation, and bartending to create a line of sodas that are sophisticated, refreshing and truly delicious. The sodas are crafted in small batches, ensuring that each can embodies the highest quality and flavour, highlighting produce at its best. This dedication to craft and detail mirrors our own approach at WatchHouse, where we strive to provide an exceptional coffee experience.

As the seasons change, so too does Rapscallion's approach. Every summer, they scour the Scottish countryside for the finest produce, capturing the essence of the season in every sip. It's a labour of love, meticulously handcrafted to ensure that each ingredient shines through, much like our commitment to showcasing the best of coffee.

Our Selection of Rapscallion Sodas.

Rapscallion Sodas Selection

At WatchHouse, we stock three of Rapscallion’s core drinks, each offering a unique flavour profile, just like our beans:

  • Ginga Ninja: A reimagined ginger beer with a modern twist, featuring cold-pressed ginger juice, cardamom, pimento, and dried chillies, providing a dry and fiery kick with a clean finish.
  • Burnt Lemon: Juicy and tart, combining caramelised lemon zest, fresh lemon juice, and black pepper, delivering a complex flavour reminiscent of a lemon meringue pie without the excess sugar.
  • Dry Lime: Sharp and bitter with a rounded finish and made with candied lime rind, fresh lime juice, and kaffir lime leaf, offers a refreshing bite – just like biting into a lime.
Burnt Lemon Soda

Of the three, Burnt Lemon has quickly become a favourite among our guests. The unique flavour profile is both nostalgic and innovative, with a balance of juicy tartness and complex finish that pairs beautifully with our pastries, breakfast and brunch dishes. Moreover, Burnt Lemon serves as a refreshing alternative to coffee, making it an ideal choice for those looking to enjoy a crisp and lively drink, especially on a hot summer's day. Its juicy, tart profile is perfect for cooling down and waking up your palate, and is a deliciously different way to stay refreshed.
