Official Brand Overview
Up Mountain Switchel is a Vermont Drink Company making An American Heritage Beverage Made with Organic, Vegan, & Gluten Free ingredients. Switchel is an American Heritage Beverage created by Farmers seeking to quench thirst in the hot summer sun. Working hard on the land took a toll on their bodies, put dirt in their mouths, and debris from haying in their throats. Switchel was the revitalizer, and the apple cider vinegar, ginger, and touch of sweet Vermont maple syrup, cut through it all and soothed! After a long days work, its not uncommon to mix a little whiskey or rum, home brew or moonshine with Switchel, and imbibe while the sun goes down. 200 years later, after researching the recipes of generations before us, and consulting local doctors, Switchel LLC revives the recipe in our gramma’s big red barn. We’ve shared our hard work with Vermont artisans, athletes, farmers and musicians alike. The response is inspiring. A delicious versatile elixir that meets the needs of today’s hard working people is here. Ginger is one of the most widely used medicinal roots in the world. Its main active component, curcumin, is an anti-inflammatory used to fight cancer. Apple Cider Vinegar alkalizes the body, fights obesity and diabetes, and is used widely to cure almost any ailment you can think of. Maple Syrup is mineral rich, all natural, and has tons of calcium. Pour it over ice, heat it like a tea. Mix it with a spirit, marinate your steak with it, or even use it in a homemade salad dressing. However you choose to use Switchel, we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy making it. This is Switchel. Cheers.
