A switchel is a concentrated uplifting energy tonic, slightly sour, with a hint of sweet and is often referred to as one of the original electrolyte tonics.  We have based Wild Dispensary’s Switchel on an 17th century recipe drunk by haymakers as a replenishing tonic after a day in the field of hard physical labour.  

Our Switchel combines Otago elderberries, fresh ginger root, mānuka leaves and flowers which are infused for several weeks in raw organic apple cider vinegar and raw Dunedin honey.

Excellent support for

  • Digestion and gut health
  • Immune support
  • Energy

Enjoy our Switchel as a morning prebiotic, an afternoon pick-me-up, or as an after-activity rehydration drink.
