Pedacola – the austrian coke
Pedacola is an invention from Peter Leitner from the region Mühlviertel in Upper Austria. Quickly he built up a reputation for his local coke – the Pedacola – which you can enjoy now in The Heart of Joy.
The hilly austrian district Mühlviertel – north from Linz – is the perfect spot to cultivate the main ingredient for his drink: the appleringie. 100% natural ingredients are making the drink so unique and tasty. Appleringie originally comes from the wearout plants and grows very easy no matter how hot or cold it is.
Since three years Peter dedicates himself full-time to his refreshing herbal drink. Remarkable is that his coke is white. Precicsly because Peter is avoiding caramel coloring and the cola nut. Therefore his drink is decaffeinated and loved by children aswell.
Peter loves to take care of the environment. This is why he cultivates the appleringie plants from six to eight different farmers in his region. In this way he reduces monoculture and saves the soil from partial planting. Another ingredient is the organic beet sugar which grows at the farm of Michael Luftensteiner in the beautiful Upper Austria region. Mint, vanilla and lemon are more ingredients of Pedacola.
In the small village of Pabneukirchen Pedacola is being soaked and filled into bottles by Johann Steiner – a dear friend of Peter. Peter loves simplicty – this is why he is packing and labelling the glass bottles with the fizzy drink on his own. He also delivers his creation to our restaurant.
All in all a 100% local organic product which is lovely fizzy and refreshing without any enhanced flavors. Mixed with sparkling water and a slice of lemon is Pedacola a wonderful organic tasty drink. Visit our restaurant and enjoy Pedacola.
