Silver Spring products are commonplace throughout the County of Kent, and many (including its 'Perfectly Clear' flavoured water range) are distributed nationwide. Certain lines are, however, distributed only in Kent, thus the company has a very local feel to it. Although many of its products are generic in nature (cola, mineral water, etc.) it produces one line which is believed to be unique. This is the soft drink Bing, which is widely drunk in Kent, but virtually unknown outside the county. The company's lemonade is also known by the distinctive product title Spring Up.
Silver Spring has been operating from Folkestone since 1870 and remains an independent company. It retains many traditional features; for example, it continues to manufacture its own bottles, both glass and plastic.
Silver Spring have since taken over in producing Virgin Cola.
