So, What The heck is Switchel?
Cide Road Organic Switchel is a sweet and tart-gingery beverage that exudes a slight tang from the unique blend of apple cider vinegar, a touch of sweetness from maple syrup and notes of spice from ginger. It’s the perfect refreshment for any time of day.
Cide Road Organic Switchel contains the following ingredients.
Apple Cider Vinegar – Lends a tart tang and is claimed to help lower blood pressure & cholesterol and help balance the body’s alkalinity.Through the years, mothers have used it as a “cure all” to help with everything from the common cold to a belly ache. It’s antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal; so it can soothe a sore throat, relieve heartburn and so much more!
Maple Syrup – This traditional sweetener has a lower glycemic index than sugar, is packed with antioxidants, and helps replenish energy.
Ginger – A spice utilized for thousands of years for its medicinal properties, ginger is best known for alleviating nausea as it promotes the secretion of various digestive juices and enzymes that neutralize stomach acid. Also, it’s anti-inflammatory making it a valuable tool for muscle and joint relief.
Cide Road utilizes the expertise of Ramsey, NJ based Cascadia Managing Brands to develop and deploy its sales, marketing and distribution strategy.
About Cide Road Organic Switchel:
Cide Road Organic Switchel is the New Jersey-based maker of America’s Original Thirst Quencher, Switchel. Husband and wife team, Kevin Duffy and Hilary LaForge were first introduced to Switchel during a family a ski trip to Vermont several years ago.
While exploring a side-road they came across a country store selling a homemade version in mason jars. After one sip, they were blown away by how different and tasty it was. Back at home, they started experimenting with their own recipe.
The company currently produces three flavors of Switchel including the Original Maple and Ginger along with Cherry and Blueberry. Cide Road Switchel is Certified Organic and currently available in 14 ounce glass bottles.
