Established in 1847, Smith Brother's continues a longstanding tradition of quality health and wellness products. Smith Brother's remains a trusted provider focused on efficacy, innovation, respect, accountability, and sustainability. What began as a restaurant in 1847 quickly became a leading provider of "cough candy" by 1852 and remains so today.
James Smith, a carpenter, established a restaurant in 1847, but received a formula for an effective cough candy in 1852 that revolutionized his business. Between himself, and his two sons William and Andrew, they made, advertised, and sold their cough candy throughout the HudsonValley and beyond.
Over the years, Smith Brother's grew rapidly and continued to outpace a number of market imitators. One of the first to integrate factory filled packaging, they continued to surpass rivals and drive success.
Smith Brother's manufactures a variety of proprietary products in addition to offering formulation, packaging, and private labeling solutions. Their initial cough candy recipe is now available in a variety of flavors, including:
- Wild Cherry Throat Drops
- Black Licorice Throat Drops
- Warm Apple Pie Cough Drops
- Sugar-Free Black Cherry Cough Drops
- Honey Lemon Cough Drops
- and Menthol Eucalyptus Cough Drops
In addition to these lines, Smith Brother's is now offering day and nighttime drops, vitamin c drops, mouthwater drops, and recovery drops with electrolytes.
