Mamma Nero – A tribute to the founder of Cologne

The herbal liqueur is a tribute to the mother of Emperor Nero, Julia Agrippina (Agrippina the Younger). She was born in the Oppidum Ubiorum, today’s Cologne, and later granted the settlement city rights. Julia Agrippina is symbolized in the Cologne Carnival by the maiden of the Cologne triumvirate.

In our semi-bitter, the dominant spicy flavors are enhanced by a refreshing hint of orange peel, a cool mint and lemon balm. MAMMA NERO is drunk as a digestif or aperitif.

Plüsch Prumm
– To the eternal beauty and love

The juicy-sweet peach fruit is considered a symbol of eternal beauty, youth and love and thus PLÜSCH PRUMM is also a tribute to all joyful senses. The peach aroma reveals itself immediately after pouring with a pleasant sweetness. PLÜSCH PRUMM is drunk ice cold as a shot or long drink with sparkling wine.

Our Cologne peach liqueur is obtained from sun-ripened Calanda peaches from the Spanish region of Aragón
The word Plüsch Prumm is the most beautiful Kölsch and actually means “velvet plum”.


Mexikölner – The spicy and fiery from the cathedral city

The Mexikölner with its spicy, fiery note comes from Malte Böttges and Dennis Busch, operators of the Kölschbar in Cologne’s Belgian Quarter. They had the idea of developing a spicy, tomato-based spirit. Before the final recipe was settled on, they experimented with their guests. Together with Gaffel, the Mexikölner was made available to other restaurants and retail partners. Our drinking recommendation: ice cold as a shot.

From fine tomato juice, beer brandy, habanero chili, pepper and seven other ingredients.
