History
Asina was launched in 1948 as a joint orange soda for members of the Soda Factory Association, meant as a competitor to Solo, also an orange soda, Norway’s most popular soda at that time. The Asina name derives from a name competition the Soda Factory Association announced in 1947 Asina came out on top, with Sinai and Orango respectively on second and third.

The Asina Association was founded in 1961 – an association that would manage the bottling rights and ensure that the product at any time held top a10453_asina2quality. Norway was divided into sales territory, and Asina became a known product all over the country.

After all the small soda factories have closed down, it is in 2014 only the Roma soda factory in Lillestrøm and Berentsens Brygghus who produce Asina.

Text (translated) from Wikipedia 

I can remember when Norway was divided into sales territory. In the era where I have my week end cottage there was a period when the only sodas you could get locally was Asina and Ginger Ale from Roma in Lillestrøm. Luckily, Asina was and still is an excellent soda – Ted
