The bottling company Erbak-Uludağ İçecek A.Ş. was founded in 1930 by Mehmet Hakkı Erbak and his son Nuri to market carbonated and still mineral water from a spring at the base of Mount Uludağ near Bursa, Turkey. In 1932, Nuri created the recipe for a sweetened citrus carbonated drink made from the mineral water called Uludağ Gazoz.
Uludag Orange was introduced in 1955, in the 1980s came diet versions of the soda and more recently the many flavors of Uludag Frutti.
The company is still owned by the Erbak family and currently run by Mehmet Erbak, the grandson of its founder.
A mellow refreshing drink. Kind of charming, really it makes me think of seaside outdoor cafes. Its not as zesty as Orangina or as juicy as Club Orange. This is just mellow & tasty.
There seems to be a hint of creamy smoothness to it maybe its just the locust bean gum that thickens and mellows the drink. It luxuriates on the tongue. Its refreshing in its coolness.
The orange isn't especially juicy or strong flavored and a bit artificial. Its more sour lemony citrus than orange. Everything about this drink is low key, mellow and relaxed.
Not something you'd guzzle on a hot day. And the bottle isn't too big either. Just big enough for a cool refreshing snack.
