Pussanga is a new style of a spirit, a hybrid. A natural blend of herbs and spices, specially selected from all over the world. Layered over a fruity pomegranate base. Subtly sweet, distinctive, piquant with chili, ginger and cardamom. A Worldwide First. Inspired by the traditional recipes of Amazonian shamans. In the late 1980s, young scientist Petra Spamer-Riether discovered the aphrodisiac pussanga plants in the Amazon region in Peru. 20 years later, she created the magic Pussanga spirit. Every bottle is unique. Best served on ice or in a selected cocktail.
Cleverly combined – with precious pomegranate, chilli, ginger, cardamom and the aphrodisiac Pussanga plants from South America.
An incomparable taste: fruity, subtle sharpness, slight bitter note from the Pussanga roots. With 38 percent alcohol distilled several times.
In a glass ball, the purest alcohol, mixed with soft water from the mountains of the Spessarts, extracts the ingredients and flavors from the precious herbs and spices. This method, called maceration, has a long tradition. Each bottle is unique from the Pussanga spirits manufactory. Made with great attention to detail.
In 2015, Pussanga was chosen among the 100 most innovative spirits: a hybrid, a world first.
Further international awards will follow in 2016: Gold Medal at the World Spirits Awards and Silver Outstanding Medal at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) in London.
At the end of the eighties, the young natural product chemist Petra Spamer-Riether traveled to the Amazon region of Peru for over 5 months to look for medicinal plants for a scientific work. At that time she discovered the so-called Pusanga roots, from which the shamans of the Indian tribes living there produce a stimulating love potion. Pussanga is the Indian name for these plants …
It was only 25 years later that Petra Spamer-Riether remembered these plants. Now a television journalist, she comes up with the idea of developing a special spirit with magical plants based on the model of the shamans of Peru. For over a year, she worked on the complex recipe with fresh pomegranate, with chili and ginger, cardamom and valuable bourbon vanilla, and in large quantities the Pussanga plants from Peru and Mexico, which produce an incomparable aroma and provide a slightly bitter note.
Petra Spamer-Riether is the founder of Pussanga GmbH. Together with daughter Janina, she launched the magical Pussanga spirit in September 2013. The young spirit has now won several international awards.
