“I would like to create a wine distillate, made from the best grapes, that recognises German taste as well.” Hugo Asbach, Founder of House of Asbach.
Born in Cologne, Germany, in 1868, Hugo Asbach went to France, which where he learned the art of distilling wine. He returned to Germany in 1892 and founded his own company in Rüdesheim on the banks of the romantic Rhine River, beginning with two stills. This laid the cornerstone for the unique history of the House of Asbach. After his death, his sons continued his work. In keeping with the quality standards established by Hugo Asbach, only the very highest quality of wine distillates is still used today.
Asbach Original aged 3 years is a fine and noble distillate. Through traditional distillation, careful storage for at least 3 years in oak casks and the secret Asbach maturing and refining process, Asbach Original aged 3 years acquires its unique and distinctive taste.
The colour of this 3 year old is dark topaz. The aromas are an elegant fusion of vinous and spicy notes, harmonious notes of wood, hint of cocoa. The flavours are full- bodied sweetness of ripe grapes combined with spicy notes of the noble oak- wood. The finish has slightly smoky notes of wood, nice cocoa notes and stimulating tannins.
