This summer I ate in a Georgian restaurant in Krakow, Poland. The food was really good, but especially tasty was the Georgian lemonade. I can't remember the name, but a friend of mine is going to travel near to Georgia too and I want to recommend this lemonade to him.

All I can remember is that it smelled very similar to sprite and it is in a violet bottle with Georgian letters on it. Does anybody know its name?

    Hmm Georgia is most famous for its mineral water, especially Borjomi. By hunting on the net I find mention of a syrup based softdrink called ლაღიძის წყალი (laghidzis tsqali) or Lagizde water in English. It comes in a varity of flavours but I couldn't find any photos with a violet bottle. Oct 29, 2011 at 20:37

    What colour was the drink itself? Clear like sprite? What about the flavour? Like lemonade or like Sprite or something different? Oct 30, 2011 at 12:25
  • The drink itself was clear like sprite and also tasted like sprite. Then Lagizde water is kinda close, but the bottle was more violett. Oct 31, 2011 at 8:58
  • What year were you there? It appears some brands change colours over the years...

  • @Roflcoptr: Well that rules out the grape flavoured Natakhtari which was a purplish drink in a clear bottle and the closest I can find so far. Oct 31, 2011 at 9:28

Ah yes! you must have been in Gruzinski Czaczapuri!
I am also looking for this lemonade, especially the pear flavour, I think this might be it!

Here are the two most major manufacturers of lemonade in Georgia:



Does it look familiar?

There is also Zandukeli

  • Ah yes Natakhtari was always around during my visit to Tbilisi last year. But I see neither site has the violet bottle Roflcopter described... Oct 31, 2011 at 8:50
  • Zandukeli also seems to come in clear bottles. Oct 31, 2011 at 10:12

Giorgi already mentioned Zandukeli (ზანდუკელი) but here's a photo of a bottle I drank in a local restaurant a few days ago.

The bottle was clear but the lemonade was violet. It didn't taste like Sprite though, it was grape flavour. In fact a local Georgian grape variety called saperavi (საფერავი), which makes it quite unique.

საფერავი ზანდუკელი
Sorry it's blurry and not colour-accurate. I took it without flash and the lighting was quite dim.


I think the name is Zedazeni I also tried the drink myself it was very tasty
