Counterpoint was launched in 2013 and was originally known as Britvic Licensed Wholesale Ltd. However Counterpoint has roots reaching back to 1799 when Augustine Thwaites developed the Thwaites’ Soda Water brand and later in 1852 when Thomas Cantrell invented ginger ale in Belfast, the brand called Club Ginger Ale today.
Counterpoint are proud to be the brand owners of hugely popular Irish heritage brands like Club Orange, Miwadi, and the recently re-launched Club Mixers.
