Research Facts
Sylvester Andral Kilmer, MD started a prominent laboratory in the late 1870's in Binghamton, NY after fame and attention drawn from his travels and speaking throughout the US. He was later pushed out of the company by family or chose to leave.
The 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act banned the use of the word "cure" on bottles or in advertising in the U.S.
Swamp-Root cure contained: alcohol 10%, buchu leaves, scullcap leaves, golden seal root, colombo root, valerian root, cinnamon, oil of juniper, oil of birch, balsam copaiba, balsam tolu, venice turpentine, peppermint herb, rhubarb root, mandrake root, sassafras, and cape aloes.
Like ginger, cinnamon is a warming herb that helps with circulation, congestion, and boosting immunities which make it a great addition to any cold or cough syrup.

Research Facts
Malt whiskey is whiskey that is made from a fermented mash produced primarily from a malted grain. Unless otherwise indicated, it is generally assumed that the primary grain is barley, although whiskey is also made using malted rye or other grains.
Malted whiskey was the specialty of the Walter B. Duffy Co. and it was marketed across the United States as a heart tonic, remedy for pneumonia, consumption and haemorrhages.
Ultimately, “The Great American Fraud” helped lead to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906. This movement, along with the temperance movement and growing sophistication in medical knowledge, spelled eventual doom for Duffy’s.
Beginning in 1915, Duffy's Pure Malt Liquor ceased to make medicinal claims other than its being a "tonic stimulant" and "household remedy." As Prohibition set in, Duffy's dropped the label "whiskey" and marketed its product strictly as a "tonic."
