We brew our energizing ‘Roots Tonic’ at the base of the Catskill Mountains. We are a family owned business that is focused on sustainability, purity and supporting local economies. Our bottles and labels are sourced right here in Upstate NY. Our ‘Roots Tonic’ is slowly brewed in small batches.
The base of our formula is a traditional Brazilian combination of three Amazon herbs. Our herbs have been responsibly harvested and are naturally Organic. One of the herbs ‘Guarana’ is a seed while the other two ‘Catuaba’ and ‘Muira Puama’ are wood and root based. These herbs have been used for thousands of years and are celebrated for a wide spectrum of reputed attributes.
The seeds are traditionally roasted, ground and consumed as a tea during times of heavy exertion, harvests and war. Called “a gift from the Gods”, its energizing qualities are primarily derived from guarine which is almost identical to caffeine. Unlike the swift high and low of most caffeinated beverages, guaraná has a more steady buzz that can last for hours.
The saying goes… “Before 60 the child is yours, after 60 the child is Catuaba’s.” This tree’s bark is cherished for a wide range of properties and is considered Brazil’s #1 ‘love’ tonic. Scientists are studying it’s potential anti-depressant properties.
Muira Puama, known as “Potency Wood”, is often consumed alongside Catuaba and is revered as a nervous system tonic. This herb is used by both men and women to treat a wide range of conditions.
