The product itself was formulated in 1923 incorporating the natural extract of beech wood, renowned for not only its strong unique flavour but also for its soothing properties for the nose and throat.


Up to 1991 it was marketed as a Simpkins Bronchial Catarrh Lozenge and because of its medical benefits was prescribed by ear, nose and throat specialists throughout the UK and in particular by the Harley Street medical division in London.


The popularity of the product grew over the century with many people being totally dependent on it for its soothing properties, particularly by the D'Oly Cart Operatic Group and other international singers.  However, after extensive research it became apparent that a major number of consumers were not buying it for its medical properties but rather for its unique taste.


To capture a wider share of the market it was decided to repack the product in a more acceptable form and so appeal to a much wider section of the market.


The name Olde Miners was chosen because it came to light that in centuries past extract of beech wood was consumed by the tin miners in Cornwall, UK whilst working underground in dusty conditions.  When the climate was cold it was considered a warming ingredient, but strangely enough it was discovered that it was being used by heavy steel ingot casting workers for its cooling effect when working in heat created by the coal furnaces. This however was felt to be psychological as there is no evidence of beech wood being cooling, but nevertheless many people claimed that it had that effect.


Because of its consumption in such extreme conditions associated with mining and coal the name was felt appropriate
