Considerations when Sourcing Food Grade Alcohol For Cooking

Why not just buy alcohol for cooking at the liquor store?

Yes, just like you have done up to this point, you could continue to just source your alcohol for cooking from the local liquor store.  If you are in need of an ingredient with a certain characteristic, say a certain orange flavored cognac to layer citrus flavor on top of a flambe for cherries jubilee, go with what you know works, always. 

If the liquor store is local and closer, why should I buy food grade alcohol online from

Buying online from grants chefs and bakers access to pure 200 proof, undenatured (zero additives), ethyl alcohol.  This product has very little odor, very neutral taste profile, a culinary blank canvas awaiting flavor to be imparted, the possibilities are limitless.  

Is Culinary Solvent basically just Everclear?

Both Culinary Solvent and Everclear are undenatured ethyl alcohol products, both are safe for consumption, both can be used in the kitchen.  If you have experience working with Everclear 190 proof, you will enjoy the benefits of making the switch to Culinary Solvent's 200 proof food grade ethanol.  Learn more about Culinary Solvent vs Everclear here.  Everclear is a registered trademark of Luxco, Inc and is not affiliated with Culinary Solvent or The Northern Maine Distilling Company.

You may be able to find 190 proof like Everclear in a beverage liquor store near you, however not all states sell alcohol this high proof. 

good to know, not all states that prohibit Everclear 190 proof also prohibit 200 proof food grade ethanol

If your state prohibits Everclear 190 proof including CaliforniaFloridaMaineNorth CarolinaOhio, & Pennsylvania, you can still legally purchase 200 proof food grade alcohol, like Culinary Solvent, online without permit or additional steps after checkout. We read every state's rules, built a database, and then published each state's specific regulations here if you would like to check them out for yourself.
