Sometime toward the end of WWII a promise was made to celebrate a new begining with the invention of a brand new and exciting drink.
"If they don't "KILL" us now, we have a chance to "PITSCH" a few more. "KILLEPITSCH, " the name was born. Shortly thereafter the trade embargo was lifted on occupied Germany and Willi Bush, a skilled distiller was able to shop the world for the precious ingredients he needed for his new liqueur. He selected more than 90 fruits, berries, herbs and spices which are used for this delicious herbal liqueur. 84 proof makes it a truly dangerous concoction.
The Busch Distillery, situated in the heart of old Duesseldorf, had produced traditional drink specialities since 1858. In the early 1950's, "KILLEPITSCH" was launched.
