Product Information

Food Grade Ethanol, Organic Alcohol 95% or 190 proof ethanol - Australia

AVAILABLE now in limited quantities.

Harris Organic's meticulously handcrafted food-grade ethanol alcohol is the only certified organic alcohol made in Australia for tinctures and perfumes.

We are very proud to be the only certified organic grape distillery in Australia making our own pure ethanol alcoholic spirit. Such a dedicated approach to creating our own organic ethanol alcohol and organic alcohol is rarely seen in the industry and offers you a first-hand experience from vine to bottle. 
Pure ethanol is distilled many times to produce the purest natural ethanol.  This pure alcohol is bottled directly from the still.   It is now available in 500 ml bottles. This organic ethanol grape spirit is used by herbalists, for tinctures and extraction of flavours from herbs and spices. This is an alternative to grain alcohol in Australia. 

This 95% ethanol, pure ethanol alcohol, undenatured alcohol or non-denatured ethyl alcohol is potable food-grade ethanol suitable for applications where the presence of other denaturants or higher odour makes conventional methylated spirits unsuitable. This product is not denatured. You will find cheaper bioethanol alcohol on the market as denatured, however, it has a nasty chemical that makes it unsuitable for food.

What is undenatured alcohol?

Natured alcohol or the double infinitive undenatured alcohol is pure alcohol, without an adulterant added. (Metho is denatured, and has no use for your tinctures or herbal recipes.)

This is what we call food-grade alcohol or pure alcohol.

What can I use instead of grain alcohol?

You can use pure alcohol for perfume, tinctures, herbal essences and extraction of elements from herbs, organic ethanol will do the same job as it is extraction grade ethanol.  Ethanol alcohol (ethyl alcohol) is an alternative to alcohol for tincture or alcohol for limoncello.

This pure 95% or 190 proof alcoholic food-grade ethanol has no sulphites or any other chemicals or filtering agent added.  ie No additives, no perfumes, no oils, no sugar, no fat, no acid added in these products, just grapes and rainwater. The alcohol content is 95% by volume or 190 proof alcohol by volume.  Also known as grain alcohol in the USA. 

What can I use instead of grain alcohol?

If you're looking for a substitute for grain alcohol, you can use our organic grape alcohol instead of high-proof 190 proof alcohol.

NB This 95% per cent or 190 proof alcohol is NOT for drinking unless diluted to less than 40%. It is for medicinal purposes only, ideal for sanitiser, tinctures or natural perfume base or used as food-grade organic alcohol.

This is an alternative to buying "organic grain alcohol 190 proof Australia", or "pure grain alcohol Australia" or "190 proof alcohol Australia" or "alcohol Australia" or an alternative to grain alcohol for tinctures.

If you would like to purchase, ie buy food-grade ethanol in greater quantities of alcohol and are residing in Australia, please contact the organic store and discuss your needs for food-grade alcohol. 

Alcohol is ethanol, yes it is. there are several forms of alcohol. The one humans use is ethanol or called ethyl alcohol. Methanol is another derivative, which is poisonous to humans.

Buy Neutral Grain Spirit - Australia

You can buy the equivalent of neutral grain spirit which is made in Australia right here from this online shop. Neutral grain spirit and neutral brandy spirit are the same product when it comes to making tinctures.  Delivery is available anywhere in Australia. In the USA it is called grain alcohol. However, in Australia, grain alcohol is unknown.

What is Certified Organic Ethanol?

All types of organic ethanol are produced using methods from organic farming in which the grapes are grown without pesticides, artificial fertilizers or herbicides and are processed without preservatives or food additives. Certified organic ethanol is regulated by AQIS and can be used as food-grade ethanol for human consumption. The alcohol label also says it is highly flammable, so you should treat it like petrol, meanwhile, it as it is 95% or 190 proof. Warm 40% alcohol will burn easily if it is warm, so be careful. Keep out of reach of children.

What's The Difference Between Alcohol and Ethanol?

The difference between alcohol and ethanol is straightforward. There are several types of alcohol. Ethyl alcohol, known as ethanol, is the only type of alcohol that you can drink without poisoning yourself, and then only if it hasn't been denatured or doesn't contain toxic impurities. Ethanol has many other non-chemical names, such as grain alcohol because it is the main type of alcohol produced by grain fermentation. However, here we make our organic ethanol from grapes. Methanol or methyl alcohol is another type of alcohol that is poisonous to humans.

Can you buy 100% alcohol or 200 proof alcohol?

No, you can not. Simply, the way the alcoholic spirit is made in a column still and the mixture of ethanol and water becomes a minimum-boiling azeotrope at this 96.2 % concentration, not 200 proof. This means that about 96% ABV or 192 proof is the maximum percentage of alcohol that can be obtained without chemically drying the alcoholic spirit. If you are looking for rubbing alcohol which is made from isopropyl alcohol then that is different from food-grade alcohol for diluting for drinking.  We are the only Australian made organic ethyl alcohol supplier. Where to buy food grade alcohol?

Where to buy ethanol?

Many people ask us where to buy ethanol. Luckily you have come to the right place for food-grade ethanol alcohol.

Tumeric tinctures

You can use grain alcohol to make Tumeric tinctures, however, you can buy our Australian vodka instead at a better price. It's 40% ethanol, which is enough alcohol to give you a stable tincture. 

Order online and have 180 proof alcohol delivered anywhere in Australia.

Yes, after you order online we deliver to your door.

What is ETOH?

ETOH is ethyl alcohol. ET stands for ethyl and the OH is the molecule on the end of the atomic chain, hence ETOH.

External use ONLY

You will see the label says, "External Use Only". Why does it say this? It is because internal use straight from the bottle will kill you. You must dilute the alcohol for consumption.

However, if you are making limoncello or a tincture and following the proper recipe you will find that an alcohol level lower than 40% will be OK to consume.

Can you drink pure ethanol?

Some people search google for the answer to "can you drink pure ethanol" or pure 95% alcohol. NO, is the simple answer. If ethanol is ingested it burns the internal organs and throat lining, then alcohol toxicity takes over and death comes knocking on the door.

Good luck with whatever process you are using.

Do you need a permit to buy food grade alcohol?

People often ask," Do you need a permit to buy food-grade alcohol?". You can buy food-grade alcohol from Harris Organic without a concessional permit.

Since I’m a first-time customer of this product and I know it’s something not to play around with I just wanted to know for certain this is for human consumption?
