We have turned back the clock and revived the German tradition of distilling beer. pür·spirits introduces bierbrand, an old-school German distillation of craft-brewed Märzen beer that is aged in chestnut casks. This rare and unique spirit is a graceful cousin of whisky yet rightly occupies a category all its own. The secret to distilling pür·geist bierbrand lies in our fine beer, brewed according to the German Reinheitsgebot, and generations of experience! Exceptional quality is guaranteed by excluding anything but 4 ingredients: malted barley, hops, yeast, and alpine spring water. In contrast to commercially mass produced liquors, pür·geist bierbrand is small batch distilled in traditional copper pot stills to extract all the beer’s nuances. New barrels impart a luminous golden color and add chestnut notes to the bierbrand’s fine maltiness.
Delicious served straight at room temperature or as a beer lover’s twist to a more traditional Manhattan.
