Switchle is the only certified organic, fermented adult soft drink to provide premium-crafted, refreshment with natural sustained energy. A mouth-watering blend of sparkling spring water, apple cider vinegar ‘with mother’, organic honey, fruit juices and botanical extracts that will delight your taste buds, satisfy your thirst and fuel your body with natural goodness.
Sugar Tax exempt, with only naturally occurring sugars from the fruit juices and honey, Switchle taps into the growing popularity for fermented drinks – as consumers continue to develop their understanding of the broad health benefits, particularly for the gut.

“Switchle is our way of bringing something really innovative to the craft adult soft drinks category. It delivers a truly unique and relevant consumer experience from both a taste but also health perspective and we’re really excited to finally bring it to market.”, says Carlo Buckley (Business Opportunities Manager, Healthy Sales Group).

We then added a unique blend of popular health-giving organic fruit juices, spices and botanical extracts to produce 3 unique flavour combinations:
