Pronounced Klee-Ko -- June 17, 2022

New York Herald, 28-June-1922

At one time the Clicquot Club Company was one of the major soft-drink producers. It went out of business in 1980. The company was best known for its ginger ale, but it also made sarsaparilla, birch beer and root beer. I have never had birch beer. I like sarsaparilla, but I haven't had it for years. 
In the late 1920s, Cliquot Club sponsored a popular radio show, The Clicquot Club Eskimos. The Eskimos, named after the brand's mascot, were a band led by banjoist Harry Reser.
