OUR RAW MATERIALS

NATURAL PRODUCTS AS FAR AS THE PALATE CAN TASTE

As a manufacturer of natural flavors, we at Destilla work exclusively with precious natural products. They are our raw materials – and our motivation, too. Artificial flavors 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.
