It was all started by local Gretna Primary School Molly Rose McLean at aged eight (one of UK’s youngest CEOs) being inspired by a YouTube video called “The Duck Song” shown to her by her dad which was about a duck going to a Lemonade Stand. She asked her mum if she could have an lemonade stand and with the success of that after selling 40 litres of lemonade and donating £100 of her first sales to the local charity Cash For Kids, Molly Rose Drinks’ Lemonade was born! Now in bottled form and following their ethos, 10% goes to a children charity with the current chosen one being Jigsaw Children’s Hospice in Carlisle. In a world of many fizzy soft drinks, what also makes Molly Rose Drinks’ Lemonade different is that it has no bubbles so it is a new kind of soft drink alternative.
“Molly Rose Drinks’ vision is to provide Molly’s tastiest social soft drink that is kind to others. Our lemonade is a classic drink with a modern twist. It is a real lemony, fresh, zingy lemonade with a hint of vanilla and has no bubbles. It packs a punch.” Claire, Molly’s Mum.When asked how they felt about their tasty lemonade being available in all our John Watt and Son cafes, they said;
“We’re delighted that John Watt & Son coffee shops stock our lemonade. Their customers love being able to buy it there and it’s great to see that John Watt & Son support local food and drinks producers. BIG thank you from #TeamMollyRose.”You can enjoy Molly Rose Drinks’ Lemonade in all our John Watt and Son cafes across Cumbria; (Carlisle) John Watt and Son Bank Street Coffee Shop, John Watt and Son Blackfriars Roastery & Espresso Bar, John Watt and Son Café at Cumbria’s Museum Of Military Life at Carlisle Castle and (Whitehaven) John Watt and Son Café at The Rum Story.
