Top 10 organic drinks

20th November, 2013 by Andy Young

To some people organic simply means that you pay more for something, but to many others organic is an important choice regarding food and drinks production and packaging.

Organic farmingOrganic standards cover all aspects of organic food certification including production and packaging, animal welfare, wildlife conservation, and ban unnecessary and harmful food additives in organic processed foods.

In the UK, the Soil Association charity has been certifying since 1973 and is the largest UK organic certification body. The Soil Association standards exceed the EU organic regulations minimum requirements in many areas, but particularly in relation to animal welfare, GM and the use of pesticides.

In the US the Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulates the country’s organic programme and ensures that any food or drink that carries an organic label has been “produced, processed, and certified to be consistent with national organic standards”.

Being labelled organic does not mean that every aspect of a company’s operation needs to be organic. The certification can cover specific products that are made and not the complete premises, so this can help certain brands to produce organic products, while still producing other “non-organic products”.

But which alcoholic drinks are organic? Click through the following pages to find our selection of organic alcoholic drinks.
