Bôtan Distillery is a flavour institute of superior Non-Alcoholic Distillates. We distill and grow herbs and flowers ourselves driven by time, terroir and craftsmanship. We pride ourselves on not using artificial ingredients or preservatives. That's why our Non-Alcoholic Spirits are superior.
The inspiration for our honest philosophy lies in the extensive list of ingredients of your non-alcoholic spirit. Just read the back of the bottle of all other non-alcoholic spirits. The list starts with water, sugar and then an enumeration of artificial flavors, preservatives, sugars and e-numbers. You don't expect this, right?
We decided to take a different approach and stepped out of the industrialized frame of reference of spirits. Our spirits contain no industrial flavors, no preservatives and no sugars. In addition, we skip the industrial process of de-alcoholization.
To achieve this, we returned to nature. Together with our culinary herbalist W. Maes, we studied herbs, flowers and spices from all over the world. We analysed the molecular structure and presence of natural preservatives.
By developing a groundbreaking liquid technology, we established a new category of N/A spirits. Our technology enables to capture the complete flavour palette of herbs.
- No artificial flavour additives
- No (so-called) natural flavour aromas
- No preservatives, No alcohol
- No e-numbers like Citric Acid (E330 / citroenzuur) — Potassium Sorbate (E202 / kaliumsorbaat) — Vitamine C (E300 / Ascorbic Acid) — Sodium Benzoate (E211 ) — Colorantes (E129, E102, E124 of E122)
- What is an e-number? An e-number is a lab-made food additive. Some say that e-numbers are often naturally found in food. That’s wrong. E.g. a lemon naturally holds Vitamin C, but the e-number Citric Acid / Lemon Extract or E330 is a chemical lab-made substance. It has nothing to do with real lemons.
Our N/A Botanical Distillates are served by World's greatest chefs and bartenders. Superior, gastronomic-grade and an expression of seasons.
