OUR RAW MATERIALS
Natural products as far as the palate can taste
As a manufacturer of natural flavours, we at Destilla work exclusively with precious natural products. They are our raw materials – and our motivation, too. Artificial flavours are simply not an option for us.
To make the best possible use of these natural resources, we process them in a particularly gentle manner. Whether it’s fresh regional herbs, exotic fruits from Latin America or noble spices from India – only the best raw materials from sustainable agriculture are good enough for subsequent processing at Destilla. This is our commitment to ensuring the consistently high taste quality of our products – and yours, too.

So you know where it comes from
Unadulterated taste to the very best of our knowledge: At Destilla, that’s the focus we tirelessly work towards. From the purchasing and production of goods all the way to their delivery ‒ we continuously monitor and document each and every step.
We choose our suppliers based on their trustworthiness and traceability ‒ not their prices.
Whether it’s from farmers next door or in the world’s most remote locations ‒ we pay a great deal of attention to the origin and regional sourcing of our raw materials.
Just how serious are we about our commitment to quality? It’s demonstrated by our archive of thousands of product samples which ensure the precise traceability of every batch.
By aiming to use water, electricity and gas in as sparing a manner as possible, we’re continuously shrinking our ecological footprint ‒ even as we increase production.
