What's Old Is New Again...
A family owned and operated business, Mayfields was originally established in Orange N.S.W in 1948. A local favourite. Mayfields continued to supply the Central West for over 30 years. Still in the same family, we have returned with healthier versions of the original recipes. We hope you love them as much as we do.
A Step Back In Time...
In the Spring of 1948 Herb Mayfield and his son-in-law Ray Golland bought a shed behind the Orange Fire Station and commenced production of soft drinks which they sold from a converted Buick touring car to the corner stores around Orange.
Herb and one employee using a single head filler ran the factory while Ray managed White’s Shoe Store during the day and looked after the books of the partnership of Mayfield’s Cordials at night. This was still a time of shortages and rationing and the new partnership didn’t have a quota for sugar or bottles. Sugar was obtained from sundry suppliers who could not use their full quota for one reason or another, while sauce, beer, and wine bottles were used because soft drink bottles simply could not be bought.
In 1949 Mayfields acquired the business run by Davis and Potter at 2-6 Sampson St., Orange. This purchase meant big changes to the business. Neville Kerr joined the partnership, and from a single head filler the manufacture progressed to an 8-head filler, a much larger factory, a real sugar quota and entry to the soft drink bottle market.
Zero Preservatives. Natural Colours.
THERE IS A STORY
NATURAL COLOURS & FLAVOURS...
Using the base formulas from Mayfields original soft drinks, we’ve tweaked the recipes to be all natural colours, flavours and preservative free
Based on the popular late 1800’s drink, Claret Cup uses a non-alcoholic wine base combined with a variety of spices, bitters, and fruit juices. Perfect for non-alcoholic cocktails, or to use as a mixer with gin, vodka, or with a splash of red wine.
Mayfields Kola combines sparkling water with cinnamon, vanilla, green tea extract and citrus oils along with caffeine from kola nuts. Perfect for that hot afternoon, or to mix with any dark spirit such as rum, bourbon, or scotch.
Mayfields Lemonade is a cloudy, old fashion drink with plenty of sparkle and a strong lemon base. With a good citrus tang it is the perfect mixer for gin and vodka, or enjoy on its own on a hot summers day.
