About Square Root London

In 2012 Ed + Robyn started making Square Root Sodas, selling them at their local farmers market. They enlisted the help of a 1920s delivery Tricycle, Elsie, and began peddling them all around town. Since then, they opened up their very own Soda Works in a railway arch in Hackney and demand for the sodas has grown exponentially. With an ever-changing range of flavours, Square Root Sodas truly are unique. Ed, Robyn and the team really do strive to get the most out of their ingredients and ensure that every flavour you try is the best it can be!
