This is an imitation of the original Goldwasser produced in 1598 by the German firm, “Danzig”. The recipe did not always include gold flakes. These were added when it became thought that gold was valuable in the treatment of certain diseases. Gold, is of course totally inert - it is quite harmless to use in food products and has since been found not to impart the benefits the alchemists attributed to it. Pure gold is still added purely for the appearance and to maintain tradition. Originally produced from aniseed and caraway, this version of Baitz tastes like a butterscotch schnapps with a faint herbal background. 23% alc./vol.
