Mill Hill Chapel

Wishlisted by Matt Mayer

It might seem strange that all soft drinks can be traced back to a chapel in Leeds, England. But it was here in 1767 that Joseph Priestley, theologian and chemist became the resident minister. While waiting for the minister’s house to be renovated, he took lodgings in Meadow Lane, close to a brewery. Experimenting with the “fixed air” emitted by the fermenting beer, he found a way to infuse the carbon dioxide into water by suspending a bowl above a vat of beer. He wrote he had a "peculiar satisfaction" while drinking his carbonated water.
