Where to buy Austrian schnaps in Bay Area?

I just read about Austrian schnaps in Saveur and I'm dying to try some - made by Hans Reisetbauer or Golles specifically. Anyone have any suggestions where I might find them?

  1. Beltramo's and Weimax have the biggest assortments of unusual liqueurs in the area. Both have Reisetbauer gin, they might be able to special-order other stuff.

    Beltramo's Wines & Spirits
    1540 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, CA 94025

    Weimax Wines
    1178 Broadway, Burlingame, CA

    1. Are you referring to austrian bierschnaps? If so, the closest/only thing you'll find here in the US is Classick Bierschnaps from Essential Spirits in Sunnyvale. And i think the only place to get it locally is K&L in Redwood City

          Ah, thanks. DEFINITELY something different then I was thinking. I hadn't heard anything specific austrian except for bierschnaps. Appreciate the education
