Coca-Cola , the well-known carbonated soft drink was first sold at a pharmacy in Atlanta, Georgia. In 1885, John Pemberton was a Colonel in the Civil War. During his time in the war he was wounded and given morphine to relieve his pain. He became addicted to the morphine, and wanted to find a substitute for the morphine. He created a French wine coca, and registered it as a nerve tonic. In 1886, he developed Coca-Cola as a nonalcoholic version of the French wine coca, and it was sold for five cents a glass at soda fountains. During that first year an average of only nine servings were sold each day. Today, 2014 over one billion of coke is sold daily. In 1891, the first bottling of Coca-Cola was released. In 1916, the unique contour bottle was created. The bottle would be different from the competitors, and set the Coke brand apart.
