Please tell me all you know. How it is made. Do you drink it neat, on the rocks or do you mix it with something?

  1. Are you referring to Asbach Uralt? It's a German brandy made from French grapes with only some two-to-four years of aging in oak prior to bottling. You can serve it straight, in a snifter after dinner, or drink it in cocktails.

    You may want to check out . . .

    Then again, if you serious enjoy brandies like Cognac and Armagnac, you may just want to check out something other than Asbach.

      I am talking about Asbach Uralt...a friend has been raving about it... I found him a bottle (in LA) and was wondering what I was in for. Thanks for your help.

    2. Asbach Hot Toddy (good for cold nights):
      hot water
      sugar or honey (or add a shot of Barenjager (honey liqueur))

      Asbach Sidecar(made similar to a margarita, but with brandy instead of tequila):
      In pint with ice
      Asbach (double shot)
      orange liqueur (half shot)
      lime juce splash
      sweet & sour (fill rest of pint)
      Shake, strain into "martini" glass rimmed with sugar.
