About Cide>>Road

Founded in 2014, Cide>>Road is a beverage company and leading producer of switchel. The core ingredients of switchel are apple cider vinegar, maple syrup and ginger. This combination creates a healthier functional beverage that’s extremely refreshing. Switchel is a drink that datesback to colonial times and was often referred to as Hay Maker’s Punch. The co founders and pioneers in this beverage category, Kevin Duffy and Hilary LaForge, a husband and wife team,conceptualized the company after a drive down a “side road” in Vermont. They stopped at a local general store that sold its own switchel mixture. After tasting switchel, Kevin developed his ownunique switchel blends and thus created Cide>>Road in order to share this drink with family,friends and now the world.
