Hello

Thomas Lowndes & Co Ltd is the UK's leading supplier of branded culinary alcohol to the food industry. 

Based in Sussex and established in 1983, Thomas Lowndes & Co has spent the last two decades spearheading the trend towards using alcohol for food. Our food and cooking ingredients have the most distinctive and exceptional flavour; from soups and sauces to desserts and dairy products; from high class confectionery to gourmet meat and fish dishes.

As part of Beam Inc., Thomas Lowndes enjoys access to some of the most prestigious international spirit and liqueur brands in the world, including JIM BEAM® Bourbon, GRAND MARNIER® and COURVOISIER® VS Cognac.

Our cooking alcohols are typically supplied as an extract or higher strength version of the standard drinking product to deliver a more concentrated and intense flavour when applied to host food partners.

We also offer an extensive portfolio of generic spirits and liqueurs such as Brandy, Rum, Whisky, Irish Cream, Amaretto and Lemoncello, specially chosen or blended for maximum flavour retention, making us one of the most trusted UK suppliers of culinary alcohol in the industry.

Using Brands

Branded culinary alcohol offers a unique competitive advantage by increasing consumer awareness, enhancing quality perception and driving sales.  The majority of our key brands, for example COURVOISIER® VS Cognac, are number one in their respective markets.

The endorsement of prestigious, quality brands adds category value, increases profits justifying a premium positioning and a point of difference to an extensive range of products.

We encourage the use of our trademarks and have made the process of using them on your packaging an easy and straightforward process.  To feature the brand name on pack, the cooking ingredients and food product needs to be approved by our taste panel to ensure the characteristics of the brand come through and the quality is of the highest standard. We supply the brand guidelines and work with clients in order to ensure the artwork is approved on time.

Why Choose Us

In addition to supplying culinary alcohol in a concentrated format and in food grade plastic suitable for the food industry, we pride ourselves on being able to offer an additional level of service in the form of extensive technical assistance and advice including dosage levels, cooking concepts, recipe development & food and alcohol combinations.

To assist with product development we are pleased to offer samples, free of charge, along with product specifications.

An added bonus is that when alcohol is used as a food ingredient, customers are able to reclaim the excise duty & we offer guidance in reclaiming these duty costs.

Having achieved ISO9001 accreditation in 1994, we are justly proud of our Quality Management System and we are committed to providing an exceptional service to all of our customers.
