Though the earliest versions of Coca-Cola were first created
in 1886, then considered a medicinal tonic, it wasn’t until this day in 1891
that the beverage was bottled. The first bottles, (far left) look nothing like
the bottles we see today. Coke was originally bottled in Vicksburg, Mississippi
at the Biedenharn Candy Company. In 1899, the first official Coca-Cola Bottling
Company was opened in Chattanooga, Tennessee. And in 1915, the shape of the
bottle changed to the “hobble skirt” design that we all know and love.
