E**X**R is velvety smooth while at the same time clean,aromatic and herbaceous. It embodies the caramel sweetness of port and the bitter flavors of a classic Italian Amaro.

»The Bitter Truth – E**X**R« is a herbal liqueur that blurs the lines of conventional wisdom. Firmly rooted in the traditions of both classic sweet vermouths and alpine digestive tonics. Enjoy E**X**R in a pre-dinner Manhattan or Negroni or enjoy it neat after a rich meal to aid digestion. It’s as delicate as the finest vermouths with an alcohol content that allows it to defy oxidation and the need for refrigeration. It’s thoroughly intriguing and the most astounding new addition to the cocktailian arsenal.

|Each variety of pur•spirits is produced according to traditional principles by a 3rd generation artisan distiller in a remote village in southern Germany. Our time-honored recipes have been passed down and refined over decades, if not centuries.
The first three varieties of pur•spirits offered in the US – pur•likor blossom (elderflower liqueur), pur•likor williams (pear liqueur) and pur•geist framboise (vodka macerated with fresh raspberries) – each won a medal at the 2009 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. We also currently offer two other distinctive varieties - pur•geist sloe(sloe flavored vodka style distillation) and pur•geist bierbrand, a distillation of beer aged in a chestnut cask. We recently launched pur•likor spice (blood orange liqueur), and have several other award-winning varieties that we hope to bring you soon.
