Products from Organic Farming - Healthy for people and nature
Eversince, we only use highest quality raw materials for our products. Additionally, with the launch of the “Dwersteg Organic” product line in 1996 we began to put a focus on the usage of organic ingredients and are proud to be one of the first manufacturers worldwide producing organic liqueurs and spirits. This step has been taken because it enhances the product quality and even helps to preserve nature, which is a very important aspect for the Teriete family.
What is Organic Farming?
The organic farming movement derives from different ideologies and agrarian political movements. The common concern is to grow and produce healthy, untreated and tasty food and help to preserve our ecosystem.
Organic Farming methods aim to:
- establish a largely closed nutrient cycle,
- maintain the health of soils and ecosystems and
- keep animals according to the needs of their species.
A very important principle of Organic Farming is the aspect of sustainability. Agriculture should be managed in a precautionary and responsible manner to protect the health and well-being of current and future generations and the environment.

Production of Organic Food
Only manufacturers and producers who meet all the requirements of the EU Organic Farming Regulation and subject themselves to the mandatory inspections are entitled to label their goods with the Bio-Siegel. A tight network of continuous inspection measures guarantees the observance of the strict quality standards for organic products on all levels. The competent inspection body can be determined and the ingredients can be traced back to where they came from through the inspection number on all organic foods. The Dwersteg Distillery is controlled by the German inspection body Lacon GmbH (DE-003-Ökokontrollstelle).
Natural ingredients, no additives
As a matter of course we DON´T use any artificial sweeteners, stabilisers, syntetic food colourants, preservatives and flavour potentiators.
Furthermore we DON´T use any extra vitamins or mineral nutrients for our products.
In order to ensure the best quality and taste we only use raw materials which meet our high quality requirements.
Minor visual variations due to natural ingredients
Our liqueurs do not only vary from similar conventional liqueurs by their distinctive taste. In order to ensure the natural state of our products we accept minor visual variations. To give an example, the look, taste and consistency of organic eggs vary from season to season, depending on weather, food etc.. This makes our highly acclaimed Organic Advocaat look slightly different depending on the time of the year. Precisely these little differences make our products unrivalled.
