Budwine was a cherry flavored drink that originated in Watkinsville, Ga. when Henry C. Anderson was looking for a drink to tempt people away from alcohol. He teamed up with a German chemist and bottled the beverage as Bludwine, from the German word blut for blood, in 1906. Bludwine became so popular that it was bottled in as many as 28 states, and its national headquarters was moved to Athens, Ga.. In 1921, the federal government challenged its slogan, "For your health's sake," finding it misleading regarding the drink's health benefits. The company was required to change its name to Budwine and to remove any reference to health claims in its advertising. The slogan was changed to "Makes you glad you're thirsty." After its popularity declined, Budwine was taken off the market in the 1990s. Q&A on the News - Coxnet Special Edition http://www.coxnetspecialedition.com (Retrieved May 4, 2009)
