Beverly is a carbonated soft drink marketed as a non-alcoholic apéritif, that was produced by The Coca-Cola Company for the Italian market, introduced in 1969.[1] Following ongoing product consolidation in the Italian market, Beverly was discontinued in 2009.[2]

The bitter taste of Beverly has become familiar to many Americans who get a chance to try it at Coca-Cola tasting stations at the World of Coca-Cola museums in Atlanta, Georgia and Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as Club Cool at Epcot and the Coca-Cola Store at Disney Springs, both located inside Walt Disney World in Bay Lake, Florida. Staff there have explained the flavoring ingredient as grapefruit rind, which includes intensely bitter components.
