More than 90 fruits, berries, herbs provide the base for this 84 proof Herbal liqueur. Similat to Jaegermeister in color, consistancy, and taste, Killepitsch goes beyond with a much stronger, more complex nature with hints of licorice, anise, and gentian. Great on the rocks, as a shot, or cocktail additive. The name and drink both were concocted at the end of WWII as a need for something new to drink to celebrate new beginnings was in teh air. "If they don't KILL us now, we will have a chance to PiITSCH a few more" was the mantra and from it was born Killepitsch. Killepitsch beat a very prestigious group of herbal liqueurs at the Tasting Institute of Chicago scoring the top mark of 94 points and an "Exceptional" rating.
