Notes: Published on the 75th anniversary of the public company (now part of the John Keells group), although lineage dates back to 1866 through Colombo Ice Company. The "father" of local aerated water industry was Arthur Von Pessner who enjoyed the "epicurean life in the days when there was no income tax". Evidently partial to stronger brew he was a regular at the Galle Face Hotel. Book embraces history of rival ice and water companies, and profiles the key figures and businesses of colonial Ceylon.
