Ramune is a super refreshing Lemonade from Japan with an astonishing design. Known as the Codd-necked bottle, it was actually invented in Europe in the late 1800's by Hiram Codd. Around 1876, Lemonade and the Codd-necked bottled were both imported to Japan at the same time. Instead of using a cork or a bottle top, Codd-necked bottles use a glass marble and a rubber gasket as it was believed, at the time, to be able to contain high pressure carbonated drinks better than conventional methods. During the container's construction, the glass is pinched into a special shape to prevent the marble from falling deep into the bottle. This causes the marble to rattle around like a wind chime as the beverage is consumed, making the drink very well loved by children. Codd-necked bottle are rarely seen these days enclosing anything other than Ramune, so it has turned into part of the symbol of Ramune.
How to drink?
Bottles of the soda are sealed up with a marble. To open them, you have to force the marble down into the bottle, where it gets captured within a small chamber. Pop it in hard and it makes a fizzy mess; which of course can be part of the appeal of the drink. While the bottle may appear novel, it's in fact an old technology that just happens to feel delightfully modern.
How to open:
1. Peel off the seal. Lift off the green cap and push down the center to release the opener. 2. Place the opener onto the top of the Ramune and press down firmly with your palm. 3. This will open the bottle by disloding the stopper. Keep pressing for 5 seconds to avoid over-flow. 4. Remove the opener from the bottle and discard.
