Ferguzade

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

I remember an energy drink called Ferguzade, which tasted like Lucozade, but slightly sweeter and a slightly different colour that ou could buy in Scotland/Northern Ireland in the 70s. Apparently, it was withdrawn from the market near the end of the 70s.

      Ferguzade was made in Forfar, Scotland by Strathmore Springs. My dad was a director there in the early 1970’s when Ferguzade bought over the Lucozade brand name and I believe they, and the Boots energy drink were all made in Forfar. My dad died in post in 1976, so I don’t know what happened after that date.

    I remember Fergusade when I was a child. When I was ill out came the Fergusade. I loved it. It is so much better than Lucozade. We should all start up a campaign to get it back. Why do all the good things disappear, such a shame. If it came back I am sure it would be a good seller.

    I can remember selling it when I worked as a Saturday assistant in a small chemist in the late 80's. Along with Askit powders, Abdines and Panadeine Co. The bottles were wrapped in coloured cellophane, if I remember correctly.

    I remember it well, my dad used to sell it in his chemist shop. Much nicer than Lucozade which, of course, has gone from strength to strength. No justice in this world!

    I was never that keen on Lucozade but loved Ferguzade!! It came in the same big glass bottle as Lucozade but it was a limey-green colour and a pure treat when I was off school ill! Aaaah memories, memories!

    I remember Ferguzade too and, like it's long running competition, Lucozade, I will always associate it with being ill. Two miracle cures if you were ill and Scottish!

    Yes, remember it came in a yellow cellophane wrapped bottle with a kind of tartan border on the label.
