In 1885, Pemberton registered his French Wine Coca nerve it’s tonic. In 1886, when Atlanta and Fulton County pass prohibition legislation, Pemberton responded by the developing Coca-Cola, necessarily a nonalcoholic version of French Wine Coca.
 
The 1st sales were at Jacob’s Pharmacy in Atlanta, Georgia, on the May 8, 1886. It was the initially sold as a patent medicine for about five cents a glass at soda fountains, which were popular in the United States at the time due to the belief that carbonated water was good for the health.
