Up Mountain Switchel Featured as a Top Trend for 2018 by Forbes and POPSUGAR

Leading editors and analysts agree that consumers want the “back-to-the earth” health at the heart of Up Mountain Switchel



South Londonderry, VT (February 2018) — Revered for its natural gut, anti-inflammatory and detox benefits, Up Mountain Switchel has been named as a 2018 trend by Forbes and as a top 15 Superfood by POPSUGAR. With a widespread reach of 56 million and 100 million respectively, this is no small recognition.

Up Mountain Switchel is a delicious heritage beverage that boasts just 4 pure ingredients: Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar, Fresh Ginger Root, Organic 100% Grade A Maple Syrup and Mountain Spring Water and no added preservatives. The original recipe was created by farmers in the 18th century to promote vitality during long days on the farm. Today, the ingredients, specifically apple cider vinegar, are revered for its ability to support a healthy microbiome. The taste of apple cider vinegar on its own can be off-putting and the deliciously concocted recipe from Up Mountain Switchel helps makes this healthful ingredient palatable. Up Mountain Switchel is also produced within a non-GMO, Organic and Vegan supply chain.

In an article entitled “Trends For 2018: The Upside-Down, Tech Reckoning, Time’s Up, Citizenship,” Forbes contributor and well known trend analyst Mary Meehan calls out switchels as part of the ‘gut health’ trend: “Fermented hipster drink switchels–an old-fashioned hydrating drink made with apple cider vinegar, ginger, and molasses, honey, or maple syrup–were originally made to help refresh farmers and others working outside in the sun all day. The natural electrolyte qualities are going to challenge all those sports drinks. Up Mountain Switchel is making a branded business of natural back-to-the-earth health.”

“These Are the 15 Superfoods Your Kitchen Needs in 2018,” POPSUGAR highlights switchel as “the new kombucha…there are tons of gut benefits, including easing inflammation, breaking down toxins, and providing potassium-rich electrolytes.”

“We are honored that Up Mountain Switchel has been identified as a top trend for 2018,” says Up Mountain Switchel founder, Ely Key. “We truly believe in the power of our heritage recipe and it’s wonderful to get validation from such prominent publications.”
