K iki Braverman was raised in Bava ria, and spent her 2 0s in the Black Forest, where the traditions of beer brewing , wine making , and fruit brandy distillation have been ref ined for centuries, and continue to form an integra l pa r t of ever yday life and culture. Working with liqueurs a llows K iki to integrate her interest in herba lism and traditiona l herba l medicina l eli xirs with her fascination of the distillation process. She is most intrigued by the elderf lower liqueur and its long histor y as a potent folk medicine. Together with renowned Bava rian distiller, Franz Xaver Sa lzgeber, K iki created pür•spirits, a por tfolio of exquisite liqueurs that ref lect the traditions of Bava rian distillates. During a trip to New York Cit y in 2 007 to visit her husband, Ha r vey ’s, family she could not locate authentic elderf lower liqueur, and, with Ha r vey ’s help, decided to bring pür•spirits to the United States. A fter many yea rs of navigating the United States liquor licensing process, and just after settling in the San Francisco Bay A rea, the f irst pür•spirits shipment a rrived in late 2 011. Since then, K iki has been out there teaching the gospel of a r tisana l liqueur, and hopes that you, too, will elevate your cocktail experience.

a rg uerite Regan works at The New Easy in Oa k land, CA and (the now shuttered) Wo Hing ’s Genera l Store in San Francisco, CA . She enjoys ba r tending , hand cutting ice, and longs to write the blues. To her disadvantage, the Ca lifornia sun shines too brig htly, resulting in a “sunny ” disposition, thus derailing her blues-writing ef for ts. She continues to tr y, however, and contemp lates a move to a moodier climate.

ictoria George has been ba r tending at a va riet y of levels for three yea rs in San Francisco, and has been with R ick house since September 2 012 . The world of spirits captured her interest long before she knew how to ma ke a cocktail, and ba r tending was the natura l path to follow. Victoria loves to cha llenge g uests to tr y “ ”something new ” and, in the process, she is cha llenged to lea rn a new classic or modern classic cocktail. Victoria lives by lea rning something new each day. Traveling teaches her favorite lessons, and reading is her greatest form of content. W hen not working , Victoria volunteers with the SPCA , practices Spanish, attempts DI Y projects via Pinterest and Etsy, and ta kes long wa lks a round San Francisco with a f ilm-loaded ca mera. W hile she may not know what she wants to “be” when she “grows up,” she is happy with the direction she is going.

The f lavor of this classic elderf lower liqueur has evolved out of a ref inement process that dates back centuries. R ich lychee, peach, apple, and buttercream a romas a re complemented by bright, spicy, herba l elderf lower accents and a f lora l mid-pa late. True to traditiona l a r tisana l methods, wild grown Lake Constance elderf lowers a re used for producing pür•likör blossom. German folk legends tell of the elderf lower ’s magica l powers and the liqueur ’s historica l origin as a medicina l eli xir distilled in German abbeys. The f lora l intensit y of this enchanting favorite is accentuated by its subtle sweetness.

Pea r liqueur is one of the most cherished beverages in Europe. pür•likör williams is handmade according to traditiona l principles, from selecting the fruit to f illing the bottles. It captures the essence of the capricious Williams pea r, and at its hea r t is an exquisite eau de vie crafted from the f inest heirloom fruit from a round Lake Constance in the foothills of the nor thern A lps, the bir thplace of pea r brandy distillation. Ba lanced, ref ined, uncompromised, its subtle sweetness is light on the pa late and emphasizes genuine pea r f lavor.
