About Fishermans Friend
For a powerful menthol lozenge that does a proper job of soothing your cough - it has to be Fisherman's Friend
It all started when Fleetwood pharmacist James Lofthouse developed a menthol and eucalyptus liquid for fishermen to bring on trips. It would deliver instant relief for problems caused by the hostile conditions of being at sea.
Due to the difficulty of taking glass bottles onto choppy seas, James makes a lozenge from the liquid. It worked so well that 150 years the lozenge is still pretty much the same!
