Rudesheimer Coffee with Asbach – Best German Brandy

rudesheimer iced coffee

In 1892 Hugo Asbach, merchant and distiller, founded the company Asbach & Co. in Rüdesheim at the romantic Rhine. He did not know at that time that he was setting a mile stone in Germany for a name that it still popular as in 1892.  A marketing slogan that is still valid today was created in 1937: “The spirit of wine is in Asbach”.
1957 Rudesheimer Coffee was created, a popular coffee drink with Asbach (see recipe). Enjoy these coffees as if you would be in Germany. You can find Rudesheimer Coffee in every good Cafe and it is the perfect hot drink for the holidays and winter months. If you cannot find the special cups use tall cups. Happy Cooking!
