“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.’

We bring you the rustic elegance of one of Europe's oldest spirituous beverages.

pürlikör blossom, elderflower liqueur embodies centuries of refinement and is crafted in accord with ancient practices in harmony with nature. Satin white elderflowers grow wild in forest clearings in the sunny climate around Lake Constance. Each spring, the distinctly floral scented star-shaped blossoms are hand-picked especially for our liqueur. They are then blended according to a tried and true formula that makes for a natural golden-copper tone, a velvety smooth aroma, and a sophisticated flavor.
