Organic Alcohol - Fair Trade

CADO's organic, community-produced, fair trade alcohol was the first the world with these characteristics. The alcohol has internationally-recognised organic certification from BCS Öko-Garantie of Germany (under renewal currently) and we also have fair trade certification (likewise).  Our aguardiente (alcohol of 60GL) is produced by hand through cooperative working by our organic sugar cane farmers.  Then it is rectified to produce alcohol (ethanol) of high purity.
CADO's organic ethanol is of high quality, appropriate for the most exacting industrial processes or for perfumery.  The organic, healthy sugar cane provides top quality aguardiente and we use the services of a high technology rectification plant to ensure that this is rectified under strict quality control.  We use gas chromatography analysis and can equal the quality specifications of your existing alcohol. 
We offer on fair trade terms:

 * Organic alcohol (ethanol) of 96.3 GL for use in extraction of compounds.

 * Potable organic alcohol for use in the liquor industry.

 * DEB96 made from organic alcohol for use in perfumery or industrial processes. 
For the first time, it is now possible to buy high-quality alcohol which has been produced in an environmentally and socially responsible way.  Our organic alcohol comes from over 250 families in an area of extreme poverty in Ecuador.   Your decision to buy will help these families to improve their quality of life as they continue to care for the environment and maintain the organic farming tradition of previous generations.
