I know it doesn't answer your question but you could try making your own, it's actually quite easy. This way you can source whatever butter you want to use, preferably grass fed. I save upwards of 50% or more per batch this way.

 

Otherwise, if you can find it "grass fed" is ideal. I'm a big fan of Pure Indian Foods grass fed ghee, they ship pretty much everywhere but I'm sure international shipping comes with a cost. www.pureindianfoods.com (also can be found at Amazon).

 

Good luck!

Clarified butter is made simply by heating butter and removing the milk solids which have risen to the top of the pot. In the making of traditional ghee, butter is brought to a boil and cooked until all the moisture is boiled off, and all the milk solids (lactose and casein) have settled to the bottom. These milks solids which have settled on the bottom of the pot are intentionally burned or caramelized, developing nutty flavor to the ghee.

 

Ghee is the pure extraction of oil from butter.

 

I make clarified butter because that's what I have access to.
