About this project
pür•spirits cocktail cult
- risk a peek into the glamorous world of artisan libations -
pür•spirits, a small women run craft spirits label, is producing a new kind of cocktail book.
Inspired by Art Deco, Tamara DeLempicka, and 1930s Berlin, we are producing a visually stunning publication that conjures a world of glamorous vintage beauty. Featuring recipes by, and portraits of, Bay Area female bartenders, stories of local bars, brands, and products, this is not just a recipe collection or instruction manual, but a visual treasure you’ll want on your coffee table and to give to your friends.
Every dollar raised in this campaign goes directly towards printing costs for the book. Any funds raised above our $15,000 goal will go towards compensating our photographer, Kelly Puleio.
This book showcases the love, passion and expertise that goes into pür•spirits, the cocktails, and the ladies that inspire us. It reflects the thoughtfulness, craftsmanship, and desire to create something better. We have a vision of superior quality which we bring to the pür•spirits book of cocktails.
Everything we do at pür•spirits is done with the utmost care. Whether we are selecting the juiciest heirloom pears for distilling our williams liqueur, picking elderflowers at dawn around our distillery, creating cocktail recipes with our products or portraying the gorgeous bar women who inspire us.
At pür•spirits, we hand distill classic fruit distillations according to old school principles. Only the best ingredients go into our products, that means when you buy a bottle of our spirits you're paying directly for ingredients. It also means that when we sell a bottle there is no fat margin to spend on billboards, TV or print advertising. Our success relies on word of mouth, on our friends and supporters in the bartending world, and on you.
pür•spirits was envisioned by a team of German and American spirits professionals. Franz Salzgeber who descends from a long line of distillers, produces pür•spirits in his traditional family distillery in rural Bavaria. Kiki Braverman masterminds the brand, Bay Area mixologist Summer-Jane Bell, and creative force Tamara Costa work at the heart of pür•spirits.
pür•spirits is a craft spirits brand…..That means we use old-fashioned hands-on distillation methods. We go beyond these by working with unusually high-quality raw materials such as heirloom pears, wild growing elderflowers and sloe berries. We believe in artisan craftsmanship and hard work helped by the knowledge and experience that has been handed down to us.
We are bringing back to life traditional distilling methods and recipes. Small-batch spirits distilled with craft methods are an antidote to all the large-production spirits you see advertised.
Your support gives you the opportunity to get involved in the world of artisan spirits, and allows us to bring our cocktail book to life. We will use all funds raised towards production and printing of the book, but if we don't reach our goal we don't get any of it. To show our appreciation we have lots of great rewards for you!
