Asbach Besucher Center
Asbach & Co was founded in Rüdesheim am Rhein on 11 May 1892 by Hugo Asbach, a 24-year-old businessman and distiller. He started production of his brandy using just two pot stills and a legend was born. From the finest grapes to the finished spirit: an entertaining and informative film presents the fascinating story behind Asbach and the creation of the brand. A unique manufacturing process is the secret behind the high quality of Asbach products. Visit the distillery to witness the distillation process first-hand. Experience the spirit of wine in the Asbach shop, where you have the opportunity to taste and purchase all these qualities by yourself. Tours with professionally hosted tastings can be arranged through Rüdesheim Tourist AG.
