René Lacoste

Wist je dat...

Niemand minder dan René Lacoste, jawel die van het krokodilletje, aan de wieg stond van de populaire combi van pompelmoessap & tonic? 

Na zijn carrière als professionele tennisspeler (o.a. 3-voudig winnaar van Roland Garros) is hij een andere uitdaging gaan zoeken en heeft deze gevonden in de golfsport.
Na enkele uren on the green vroeg hij de barman van het clubhuis steevast naar zijn favoriete dorstlesser, pompelmoessap & tonic in 1 glas, een combi die geen naam had destijds.
Maar zowel Monsieur Lacoste alsook steeds meer andere mensen vroegen aan de bar daarom ‘donne-moi mon CHOSE, svp’.

Sinds toen gaat deze traditie verder als LE CHOSE (het ding) van René Lacoste

René Lacoste

Did you know that...

None other than legendary tennis player and the man behind the sportswear with the embroidered crocodile René Lacoste was also the creator of our drink?

While attending a golf tournament in 1967, Lacoste invented Le Chose (The Thing). The mix of grapefruit juice & tonic water in one drinking glass would quickly become the traditional reward for golfers worldwide after a good round of golf.

Reinventing traditions

Pomton® is a Belgian drink created out of a well-known tradition where grapefruit juice and tonic are mixed in one drinking glass. As longtime lovers of this tradition, we noticed that it is made in (too) many different ways: if people order pomton they never know which taste, colour and/or price they will get.

Our goal with Pomton® is to offer a premium thirst quencher that is consistent in taste, colour and price.

Most Promising Startup


The annual National Foodservice Congress is Belgium’s largest single gathering of hospitality & foodservice professionals.
Their “Most Promising Startup of the Year” Award reaches out to all starting companies who have given everything to guiding their business through those all-important nascent stages.
The competition was strong, so pretty damn proud Pomton® came out as the winner. 🥇

Osaka x Pomton

at Pomton we love to blend. You already knew that, right? 

Osaka is a young brand, but already the leading lifestyle brand in hockey & padel. This ‘Bigger than Belgium’ brand totally lives by the credo ‘move fast and make things’, which makes it so inspiring for Pomton to be able to work with them.  We asked the Talented Miss Evelyn from @evelynartstudio to work her magic and customise some backpacks. 
Catch them if you can! 

Alan De Bondt

Belgium Golfer 🇧🇪 National Team Member athlete

Alan is a golfer in heart and soul. His motivation, determination and consistency make this Antwerp-based talent a standout.
In 2019 he turned Pro and at Pomton® it feels like a hole-in-one to have Alan on board as our very first official athlete.
