Derr's Soda History
Since 1889 in Boonville, Indiana
Derr's Inc., which was for many years, the oldest and only continuous bottling plant in Indiana, began operation in 1889. Charles Derr, the last owner, represented the third generation of the Derr Family to operate the business, which was founded by his grandfather; John Derr, Sr.
The recipes for the syrups have always been a guarded family secret. Some of the original soft drinks included Derr's Coke, Derr's Dry, Strawberry, Orange, Orange Pineapple, Grape, Cream Soda, and Root Beer, but there were many others. Derr's Dry and Derr's Strawberry were always two favorites.
After 106 years of operation, the business was closed in 1992. For the next 17 years, people reminisced about how they used to love to drink Derrs sodas on a hot summer day and longed for that taste again. Then in 2008, Pauline Hull Derr (Charles widow) gifted the secret syrup formulas over to Joe Derr, Jr. and John Derr and a new company under the name of C. A. Derr and Company was formed. Now, a fourth generation of the Derr family is bringing Derrs vintage sodas to customers new and old using the same formulas that have proven successful for over 100 years.
