Pur Geist Framboise-Raspberry Flavored Vodka 375mL (Half Bottle) Experience the smoothness and nuanced earthiness of pür-geist framboise. A true German geist, it gets its flavor from macerating wild forest raspberries. Maceration is a time-intensive process that delicately draws out the vibrant flavors from the fresh berries, preserving the authentic natural raspberry aroma and resulting in a never-ending finish. pür-geist framboise is distilled without sugar or additives according to a time-honored recipe. It is common in many parts of Germany to serve a good quality geist as an after dinner treat to round off an opulent meal. If served straight - as after dinner digestive - this pure, intensely flavored distillation is best enjoyed at room temperature. The lingering raspberry flavor pairs particularly well with white and dark chocolate. 40% ABV
GEIST is German for ghost or spirit. In Germany and as designated by the EU, GEIST is a traditional class of spirits defined as a distilled maceration of fruits. That means the Vodka or fruit brandy base is infused with fruit. This time-intensive process is called maceration. It delicately draws out the vibrant flavors preserving the authentic natural fruit aroma. After 30 days of maceration, the fruit is filtered out and the now flavored vodka is distilled again.
While inexpensive vodka is often made from low quality neutral grain spirits, an industrial by-product that can contain chemicals, additives and flavoring agents, German GEIST is a style of Vodka that has no additives of any kind, is produced without sugars and is never flavored with anything but the actual fruit.
Why do German distilleries make Geist? In Germany, distilleries have been distilling fruit brandy for many centuries. In order to ferment and distill berries like raspberry or sloe berries that have a low sugar content, very large amounts of berries are needed. The resulting spirits would be unaffordable if distilled according to German law - that is without the addition of sugar to the mash. Over time, distillers discovered that they could achieve an even deeper berry flavor with a smoother finish by using the GEIST technique.
