Fodor's Review

Since 1892 the Asbach Weinbrennerei has produced one of Germany's most popular brands of Weinbrand (wine brandy, the equivalent of cognac). It's a key ingredient in brandy-filled Pralinen (chocolates) and in the local version of Irish coffee, Rüdesheimer Kaffee. You can shop for the boozy goodies and visit Asbach's retired plant (call ahead to schedule a video showing in English).
