Going by the name Platzhirsch, this bitters is distilled by a small German pharmacy in a almost two hundred years lasting tradition,featuring fruity to spicy notes derived from local herbs and ginger. The name, being roughly translated to alpha-deer, indicates the formulas original use as tonic for huntsmen.

This vessel was made to pay tribute to the contents history, it combines the apothecaries’ bottle, victorian chic and a contemporarily modern printing process.
