Iron Brew, or Irn Bru as it is spelt, is Scotland’s other national drink (the other being Whisky), and has long kept global brands such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi in second place in Scotland. Iron bru is bright orange in colour and contains ammonium ferric citrate, which along with the fact that it was popular amongst the town’s steel workers in Falkirk, were it originated, it truly deserves its name. However a change in labelling laws forced todays strange spelling, as the drink was is not brewed. Though Barrs Irn Bru is sold throughout the world it is probably relatively unknown outside of ex-pat Scottish communities who seek it out in preference to cola and for mixing with scotch.
