Up Mountain Switchel has released
Original Swizzle, a lightly carbonated take
on its award-winning switchel recipe, in
12-ounce aluminum cans.
According to officials with the South
Londonderry, Vt.-based company, aluminum
cans are making a comeback in craft beverages because they feel colder to many consumers and are a sustainable option since
they are easily recyclable and light to transport, cutting down on CO2 emissions. Cans
also help to preserve freshness by blocking
light and oxygen.
“This has been a top priority for our swizzle
launch,” says Ely Key, founder of Up Mountain
Switchel. “The cans are very sustainable option
that also allow for eye-catching design of our
new brand and efficient transport. Plus, con-
sumers are simply going crazy for cans right
now - they are so easy to carry to the beach,
on trails, to a BBQ or to stock behind the bar as
a mixer or tasty non-alcoholic alternative.”
Up Mountain Switchel is made with only
four ingredients: water, organic 100-percent
Grade A maple syrup, organic raw apple cider
vinegar and fresh ginger root. The recipe was
created by farmers in the 1700s to promote
vitality and sourced to deliver real benefits
through simple, organic ingredients.
