Why Your Bar Should Switch from Bottles to Post Mix 

As a business owner, balancing quality and cost is always a challenge. Without quality products, your customers won’t return, but if your prices are too high, you risk driving business to your competitors.

At Real Soda, we are dedicated to providing pubs and bars with high quality products for an affordable price. Our expert team are so confident about the quality of our products that we’ve put together the following guide to explain why your bar should switch from bottles and cans to post mix.


The number one benefit of buying post mix for behind your bar instead of bottles or cans is that you can make more of a profit. Once your dispensers have been installed, you will only need to pay for the syrup, gas, and tap water, which works out much cheaper than a pre-made product. 

Bottles and cans are also more expensive to transport, as you are transporting the water content in bottles which weighs more and is bulkier, instead of just shipping the post mix syrup.  

Speed of Service 

During a busy service, getting drinks to customers quickly and efficiently is vital. Having several post mix dispensers which pour a variety of soft drinks is an excellent time saver, and prevents staff from running back and forth to your drinks fridge. Using a draught drinks dispenser also allows staff to conveniently make more than one drink at the same time. 

Portion Control 

When serving soft drinks from bottles or cans, you are limited to the portion sizes that you can offer. If someone asks for a ‘large cola’, but you only offer one size bottles or cans, orders can become complicated, and your customer could be dissatisfied. Using post mix means that you can offer drinks in a variety of sizes for your and your customer’s convenience.
