Considerations when sourcing Alcohol for Herbal Tinctures

Understanding Alcohol Purity and Selecting the Right Proof/ABV

The purity of alcohol and its proof or ABV directly influence the efficacy and safety of your tinctures.
What to do: Source the highest proof alcohol available for the most efficient tincture and extraction recipes.  Ensure the alcohol sourced is "ethyl alcohol" that contains zero additives.  Only "ethyl alcohol" and "water" should be listed on the label ingredients or contents statement.

Organic vs. Non-Organic Alcohol

Organic alcohol minimizes exposure to pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, offering a cleaner, more sustainable option for tincture making.
What to do: Look for the USDA Organic seal or equivalent certifications on alcohol labels to ensure you're using the highest quality product for your tinctures.

The Source of the Alcohol

Different source materials like grain, cane, grape, or corn, can impart unique characteristics to your tinctures.
What to do: Research the properties of alcohol derived from various sources and select the one that best suits the flavor and characteristics you desire in your tinctures.  Read more about the characteristics (aroma and flavor) of alcohol from cane, corn, grape, and wheat here.

Why choose "Food Grade Ethanol" for Tinctures?

  1. Safety for Consumption: Food grade ethanol is undenatured, meaning it does not contain toxic additives found in denatured alcohol. This makes it safe for consumption, an essential factor when creating tinctures intended for oral intake.

  2. Purity and Quality: Food grade ethanol is held to high purity standards, ensuring that the tinctures you make are free from harmful impurities that could compromise their effectiveness or safety.

About sourcing alcohol for tinctures locally

Sourcing high-proof alcohol for tinctures locally can be challenging due to regulatory restrictions, limited selection, and the difficulty in finding products that meet quality standards and organic certification. Many local suppliers may not carry the necessary high-proof options, or if they do, they might not adhere to the rigorous purity or organic production methods required for making quality tinctures. This scarcity is compounded by a general lack of knowledge among local retailers about the specific needs of tincture makers, alongside potential cost and accessibility issues, especially in less urbanized areas.

Ordering alcohol for tinctures from trusted online suppliers comes with several distinct advantages:
