In 1990, the Morne Délice Nutmeg Syrup and La Grenade Liqueur were honoured by “Monde Selection International Institute for Quality Selection,” the official institution established in 1961 by the Belgian Government for universally maintaining high standards of beverages and foods produced for human consumption. Each year, applying criteria laid down by the European Union, and after exhaustive laboratory tests and analyses by experts, Monde Selection awards three categories of medals─Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Above these, products of absolutely superior quality receive the Grand Gold Medal. In 1990, Morne Délice Nutmeg Syrup became the first Caribbean food product ever to receive the Grand Gold Medal. In that year also, another de La Grenade product, La Grenade Liqueur, was recognized by these quality experts and was awarded a Gold Medal.
