Cide Road

Imagine stumbling upon an ice-cold drink on a hot summer’s day. Its taste a refreshing blend of sweet and tangy. That’s switchel—a favorite past-time beverage amongst colonial Americans, also known as “Haymaker’s Punch.”

In 2014, Kevin Duffy and Hilary LaForge brought this historical gem back to life, founding Cide Road, after their chance encounter with the beverage on a family vacation in Vermont. Now, Cide Road offers the classic flavor alongside delicious twists like cherry and blueberry, which take your taste buds on a joyride.
