King Orchards' Cherry Soda

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | Aug. 17, 2019

The tart cherries are poppin’ at Central Lake’s King Orchards — and so are the tops off the family-owned orchard’s latest product: its newly released farm-crafted cherry soda with a twist of lime. Bubbly and sweet with just a wee bit of refreshing pucker, the soda is crafted from King’s own tart cherries and proving wildly popular. Kings tells us the bottles will be available year-round, but they’re not yet available for purchase online. Translation: Get yourself to one of the King’s retail markets — 4620 N. M-88 in Central Lake, or 986 S. US-31 in Kewadin — and stock up. $2.50 for a single bottle; $48 for a 24-pack.
