our roots


Founding father

A go on! Founded in 2017 HOUSE SODA began as a passion project for its owner and drink enthusiast Timothy Carley. Always in love with food and drink he began his first business endeavor as a young lad, breaking up his selection boxes at Christmas time and selling the bars on a small splintered fruit box to his aunties and uncles. The ones who originally gifted the chocolates to him in the first place. 

Equipped with that encouragement he set up a small smoothie cart in the front garden, built by his da and uncle from leftover timber from the deck and his grandfather's old golf-caddy. Thanks to his mam for buying all the fruit, straws and juice, his own profits were high and he was hooked on culinary entrepreneurship.

So much so, he went on to study at Dublin's Institute of Technology where he received a 1.1 in Culinary Entrepreneurship in his early adult years. During a food product development module the idea of a 100% natural, soda and mixer came to fruition and HOUSE SODA was born. Originally made in recycled beer kegs and hand bottled and capped at a borrowed production kitchen, It has gone on to supply several franchise chains and independent stores across Ireland.
