Lurvill's Delight   Lurvill's Delight Logo

Lurvill’s Delight was a popular carbonated soft drink in Wales between 1896 and 1910. Invented by twin brother residents of Ynyshir, Harold and Iolo Lewis, the carbonated mixture included stinging nettles, dock leaves and was infused with juniper berry extract. The profits made from the drink were used to pay for 150 coal-miners and their families from the village to emigrate to Pittsburgh and Denver in the USA. The drink ceased production in 1910 due to a shortage of dock leaves in the local area.
