blossom elderflower liqueur

International Review of Spirits Award:

93 POINTS Gold Medal
“EXCEPTIONAL”

‘Beautiful golden amber color. Rich elderflower, fruit salad and sautéed lychee aromas with a silky fruity sweet medium-to-full body and a spicy poached peach and buttercream frosting finish with a hint of alpine herbs and flowers. Wonderful style and dimension.’

Authentic elderflower flavor

weaving Bavarian tradition with perfectionism and nature’s whimsy.

German folk legends tell of the elderflower’s magical powers and the liqueur’s historical origin as a medicinal elixir distilled in German abbeys. Nothing short of hypnotic, elderflower liqueur entrances with its suede like texture and seductive blossom aroma. Its subtle sweetness accentuates the floral intensity of this enchanting favorite. The flavor of this classic elderflower liqueur has evolved out of a refinement process that dates back centuries. Rich lychee, peach, apple and buttercream aromas are complemented by bright, spicy, herbal elderflower accents and a floral mid-palate.
True to its tradition as an herbal tonic, pürlikör blossom is made exclusively from Sambucus Nigra elderflowers in accord with the seasons when the elderflowers are in bloom in spring. The result is authentically full-bodied and, because it is uncompromised, available only in limited quantities.

pürlikör blossom is a deep amber, herbaceous, dry style elderflower liqueur which is ideal for mixing as it complements other ingredients without dominating the cocktail.

Let pürlikör blossom’s versatility inspire you to create magic cocktails. A perfect companion for champagne & gin. Pairs well with grapefruit, cucumber andmint.
