Solo (Norwegian soft drink)


Solo (Norwegian soft drink)

In Norway, Solo is an orange-flavoured soft drink, owned by Norwegian companies Ringnes, Oskar Sylte, Aass, and Mack. The recipe was originally Spanish, and brought to the Tønsberg Brewery by Torleif Gulliksrud. As of 2005, Solo has a seven percent share of the Norwegian soft drink market, but was the best selling soft drink there during the 1960s. Variants of the original Solo include "Solo Lett" (diet version), "Solo Pluss" and "Solrik". Outside of Norway Solo is named "Zingo".
