Club Soda in the news

Mindful drinking is in the news. Club Soda turns up in newspapers and magazines, on TV and radio, because we think mindful drinking is for everyone – and so we want to tell people about it. If you’re a journalist, get in touch.

These are all our media appearances so far this year and some blogs that have mentioned us. There are links to previous years’ coverage for 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016 and before. And you can find all Club Soda’s research reports here.
