Frequently asked questions
What’s in Jeany’s Caribbean Elixirs anyway?
We love talking about this stuff! Jeany’s Caribbean Elixirs is a handmade, artisanal beverage made from whole fruits and veggies. We do not use animal-derived ingredients, artificial flavors, or synthetic colors. We make our own pulps from scratch, using organic, all-natural ingredients.
Are your products vegan?
Absolutely. Our elixirs are made from plants and don’t contain dairy, lactose or animal products.
Do you artificially sweeten your elixirs?
All of our elixirs are available unsweet. We are from the land of sugar cane, however. For those who like things sweet, we use organic raw agave nectar or organic cane sugar.
I like mixing your elixirs with alcohol. Is that OK?
Of course! We do the same thing at home as well. Just ask Ms. Jeany the next time you see her at the farmers market for her favorite mixer recipe. Please drink responsibly!
What is an elixir?
An elixir is another way to describe a healthy beverage with medicinal properties. Our grandmother, Lyris Charles, was a master herbalist. We use her recipes in our creations and share the magic with you!
Do you use organic fruits and veggies?
Whenever possible, and the season allows, we do use local, sustainable and organic ingredients. We even have our own local garden and have used our veggies and fruits from time to time when the bounty is overflowing. Ingredients that we personally source from our own backyard garden include: spearmint, turmeric, ginger, rosemary, cucumbers, honeydew and cantaloupe.
Where do your ingredients come from?
We try to source as many of our ingredients as locally as possible. Our partners include Bernhardt Farm, Multicultural Refugee Farm, Fruithill Farm, Simple Promise Farms, In the Garden Farm, Bouldin Creek Farm.
