About Organic Spirits at the Fancy Food Show
Royal Warrant – Organic Spirits
The Prince of Wales has appointed London & Scottish International Ltd as Supplier of Organic Spirits effective 1 January 2007.

I should like to thank all our customers, suppliers and service providers who have helped us create the market for these products since their introduction in Autumn 1999.
The Organic Spirits Company
In March of 2000 Maison Jomere embarked on a unique project with our supplier in Britain , The Organic Spirits Company, and that was to market Organic Spirits. We are pioneers in the spirit industry with the only line of fully certified organic spirits. All our spirits are fully certified in both Great Britain (Soil Association) and the United States (CCOF).
There is a discernable difference in the quality of the organic spirits, which have won International Awards at Gold, Silver and Bronze levels against the famous International Brands every year of our existence. In the United States our Juniper Green Organic Gin has been awarded a GOLD MEDAL with Exceptional next to its name status by the Chicago Beverage Institute.
Like any new category Organic Spirits has taken time to become established. However, little by little using the marketing techniques of “Hand Selling” and “Word of Mouth” we have been able to effect market penetration in key markets. The outstanding characteristics of all our Organic Spirits are their smoothness and that there is no need for charcoal filtering.
What most consumers don’t know, charcoal filtering is not a good thing. It is necessary because when spirits distilled, using harsh, industrial yeasts, they leave some congeners in the liquid that are harmful. In order to rid the spirit of these nasty congeners, a charcoal filter is used. The more congeners in the spirit, the more times it needs filtering. Of course when you filter out the bad you also take out some of the good and as a result you will end up with a non- descript product.
Our UK5 Organic Vodka and Juniper Green Organic London Dry Gin have no need for charcoal filtering and it is for this reason we have the smoothest distillate ever produced. Smell our vodka, there is no alcohol aroma, just pure clean fragrance. Since gin is produced from Vodka, there are no nasty aromas to get in the way of our botanicals and we therefore produce a wonderfully fragrant product that excites the nose and taste buds.
Since our spirits are so clean and full of flavor they are an excellent ingredient for cooking. If you would like to see some recipes go to the British site on our Juniper Green page and click on recipes for cooking.
A better way to learn about cooking with our Organic Spirits is to watch Taste This TV on television this coming year. We are extremely proud to announce that Chef Joseph Ciminera has chosen our spirits to use in his kitchen and asked that we become a sponsor of his show.
