In 1892 Hugo Asbach founded Asbach & Company which until 1991 remained in family hands. Hugo Asbach’s principles were: strict quality control, perfection, care and attention to detail with the necessary maturing time. These principles remain to this day. Quality is guaranteed through the selection of quality grapes, the diligence of the master blender, the Asbach distillation process and long term maturation and storage.
As long ago as 1908, the company founder Hugo Asbach created the unmistakable Asbach Privatbrand – initially, strictly limited and exclusively for family and friends. Asbach Privatbrand has been matured for at least 8 years in small Limousin oak barrels and is improved by the secret Asbach maturing and refining process. Asbach Privatbrand owes its unique and incomparably smooth taste to the distillation of selected wines only from the best wine growing areas.
