The Start of Seltzer

The book review in the Times today is a biography of a British guy named Joseph Priestley. Like Ben Franklin and others of his time, he dabbled in scientific experiments. To me, Priestley’s greatest accomplishment was the invention of soda water, which I drink every day. It seems that Schweppes actually patented the process a few years later.
