Bailoni Gold-Marillenlikor [moved from Los Angeles board]

While traveling Europe my Grandmother fell in love with this Apricot liqueur from Wachauer Marillen-Distillerie (in either Germany or Austria, I'm not sure which). At any rate, I've been trying to find it for her and have come up empty online and at retail. It may not be imported to the States, but doesn anyone know of German/Austrian market or specialty food/liquor store that might be worth a shot?

Thanks for the help!

  1. ..."It may not be imported to the States"...

    Is that a question or a statment of fact? If you don't know if it is imported, than the best 1st step is to E-Mail the manufacturer directly and ask them who imports/distributes/sells their products in the U.S.A.

    Click on their website, hit English, them go to the product page or right to the E-Mail button:

    1. Sorry for the confusion, the "It may not be imported to the states" comment was indeed a question. In any case, thanks a ton for the website. Very much appreciated.

      1. okay.....this is my first time on ''Chowhound'' so I don't know what happened to the reply I was trying to post.....sorry if you get this twice. I found this website that appears to ship to the US. They carry two sizes of the Bailoni Apricot but there is something about prepaying when you order. Please let me know how it works out if you decide to order some.

          Brilliant. Just seeing your post. I'll definitely check it out and let you know what happens. Thanks a bunch.

            Did you ever find a place to buy the Bailoni in the US? My inlaws are from Salzburg and I would win some serious brownie points if I could find a way to buy them a bottle from the states.

          1. Would it be similar to the apricot liquor imported by the creme de violette folks, maybe?

              Sadly, it so isn't the same thing. Bailoni is basically a gift from God that you can't buy anywhere except Europe. Surprisingly, it isn't even that expensive but it is extraordinarily good. Every time I go to Austria I bring a couple bottles back. It's like gold to me.
