Spice Drops® now Listed in Sainsbury’s

View the whole press release

Spice Drops® the range of highly concentrated natural extracts of herbs and spices have been listed by Sainsbury’s, marking the brand’s first move into the core grocery multiples sector, building on success in Ocado and Wholefoods. From 5 March Sainsbury’s will stock eight Spice Drops® varieties across 112 of its stores nationwide, including:
• Asafoetida
• Red chilli
• Paprika
• Cumin Seed
• Coriander Seed
• Garam Masala Spices
• Saffron
• Turmeric

Spice Drops® are made using natural ingredients with no artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives and contain no added salt or sugar. They are also gluten free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Sainsbury’s will be stocking Spice Drops® in their ‘World Food Aisle’ as many of the varieties are popular in Indian and Middle Eastern cooking and special promotions are planned for Ramadan and Diwali. As well as the natural link to Indian and Asian cuisine, Spice Drops® have a much broader usage appeal within all types of sauces, baking, chocolates and drinks including coffee, teas, smoothies and cocktails.

Each 5ml bottle of Spice Drops® includes a dropper to help with accurate and easy use; they are so highly concentrated that a single drop can transform a recipe by filling it with authentic flavour and aroma. Every bottle has a clear indication of the number of drops that equate to a typical measurement of the fresh ingredient, so two drops of Coriander Seed Spice Drops® is the same as ⅟₄ teaspoon of ground coriander seed, for example. Every bottle contains around 150 drops.
Spice Drops® have a shelf life of three years retaining their intense flavour to ensure consistent results, unlike dried herbs or spices which lose theirs very quickly. Thanks to the dropper they are also easy to use requiring no measuring, chopping, grating or grinding as is necessary with the fresh ingredients. The extraction process for Spice Drops®, which has been perfected over 20 years, also ensures the natural goodness of the raw ingredients is retained.

Gouri Kubair, MD for Spice Drops® said: “We are thrilled that more consumers will now be able to buy Spice Drops®. Most people who try them are won over by their convenience, quality and authenticity; this listing in Sainsbury’s will expose the brand to a much bigger audience so we hope more people will be converted!”

Spice Drops® are ethically sourced and ethically produced; the products are handmade in the factory in Kerala which is a women’s enterprise employing mainly disadvantaged women who have been marginalised due to personal circumstances. In a traditionally male dominated society, employment in the factory gives these women much needed self-confidence and independence, making a true difference to their lives.

Both amateur and professional chefs have been singing the praises of Spice Drops® including; Nigella Lawson, Tom Kerridge, Vivek Singh, Atul Kochhar, Rachel Khoo and Cyrus Todiwala.

Spice Drops® will be on sale in Sainsbury’s from 5 March in selected stores nationwide for around £3.50 per bottle. For more information on Spice Drops® and how they are made, visit www.holylama.co.uk.

Great Tasting Spice Drops® for Every Culinary Need - Naturally!

View the whole press release

Revealed as a finalist in this year’s World Food Innovation Awards for Best Ingredient Innovation, Spice Drops® is a 30-strong range of highly concentrated natural extracts of herbs and spices that can be used to add authentic taste and aroma to any recipe in just a few drops. To enhance and improve curries or sauces, baked goods or chocolates and all kinds of drinks, including cocktails and tea, Spice Drops® are a ‘must have’ for any home or professional kitchen, food outlet, bakery, chocolatier, barista and cocktail bar. Spice Drops® will discover if they have won an Innovation Award on 20 March at a special ceremony at IFE. They will also be unveiling their newest flavour at the show – Lime Spice Drops®.

Made using natural extracts, which are largely locally sourced, Spice Drops® are gluten free, contain no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives and have no added salt or sugar. Unlike dried herbs and spices which lose their flavour and aroma very quickly, Spice Drops® retain their intensity for three years, ensuring consistent and reliable results every time. The extraction process, which has been perfected over 20 years, also ensures the natural goodness of the raw ingredients is retained.

100ml bottle for catering 5ml bottle for retail

The beauty of Spice Drops® is their simplicity and ease of use. Each bottle (5ml for retail and 100ml, 500ml, 1l or 5l bottles for catering purposes) comes equipped with a dropper which allows for easy, accurate dispense, removing the need to grind, grate or chop up the raw ingredients. They also clearly state the number of drops needed to replicate the effects of the raw or fresh ingredient eg four drops of Garlic Spice Drops® equates to one clove. Spice Drops® can be added at any point in the recipe to ensure the optimum flavour is achieved. This is as true for a mother cooking for her family or a chef creating vats of spicy curry, as it is a baker seeking a delicate hint of vanilla in a cake mixture, to a chocolatier looking for a subtle rose filling for a soft centre, or a mixologist making a mojito with an extra hit of mint. Spice Drops® are versatile!

Over half the Spice Drops® range has been awarded one or two stars from the Great Taste Awards with the judges commenting favourably on the accuracy of the dropper as a dispenser and the authenticity of the individual flavours, quite often ‘astounded at the strength and brightness of flavour just a single drop produced’.

Gouri Kubair, Managing Director for Spice Drops® said: “The comments by the judges are extremely pleasing. We rebranded the product in 2016 to give it a more contemporary, fresher look and recognition of Spice Drops®’ authenticity and intense flavour is fantastic as that is what we have worked so hard to achieve. We now need to spread the word about the benefits of using Spice Drops® to more businesses and sectors within the food and hospitality industry.”

Companies that have already been convinced include Keylink, the UK’s leading supplier of chocolate and chocolate products and ingredients which promotes Spice Drops® as one of their premium flavourings for chocolatiers, while retailers such as Sainsbury’s (a new stockist from 5 March 2017), Ocado, Amazon, Not on the High Street and selected Whole Food Stores sell them direct to consumers. Spice Drops® also recently featured in the popular Craft Gin Club’s monthly members’ gift box to help promote their use in cocktails. This introduced Lemongrass Spice Drops® to a whole new audience of cocktail officianados who now confess to loving them.

Spice Drops® are also used across the drinks industry by professional mixologists and in food service by chefs including Vivek Singh, Executive Chef and CEO of The Cinnamon Club who says: “We use Spice Drops® in some of our food and drink recipes. We find them to be of the highest quality; extremely easy to use and the flavour is completely authentic - just as if using raw ingredients."

The broad range of flavours that Spice Drops® offers means all chefs, drinks professionals, chocolatiers or bakers have an easy, quick and convenient solution for their every need be they a small artisan business, a top restaurant or caterers working on an industrial scale, enabling them to experiment with new, exciting flavours with reliable results every time.

The Spice Drop range comprises:
Cardamom** Clove*
Chai Spices** Coriander Seed*
Tikka Masala Cumin Seed*
Cinnamon** Fennel Seed
Ginger Garam Masala Spices**
Lemongrass** Garlic
Rose* Lemon
Mint Lovage Seed
Vanilla Mace*
Mulling Spices – seasonal** Nutmeg
Saffron* Orange**
Tulsi* Paprika
Turmeric Pepper*
Asafoetida Peppermint*
Red Chilli Saffron & Spices

Awarded Great Taste Award: *one gold star winner and ** two gold star winners

Finally, Spice Drops® are ethically sourced and ethically produced; the products are handmade in the factory in Kerala which is a women’s enterprise employing mainly disadvantaged women who have been marginalised due to personal circumstances. In a traditionally male dominated society, employment in the factory gives these women much needed self-confidence and independence, making a true difference to their lives.
