Almdudler’s meticulous production process begins with collecting and drying alpine herbs. One of the first, important quality tests involves determining the amount of essential oils in the herbs and evaluating them. These herbs include lemon balm, sage, gentian, elderflower and coneflower; those which meet Almdudler’s strict criteria go through a mixing process and the high quality aroma is carefully extracted. This extract is allowed to mature over several weeks, creating the unmistakable Almdudler aroma. To make Almdudler, this alpine herb extract is then mixed with fresh spring water, natural beet sugar and citric acid, carbonated and poured into the original Almdudler bottle. That’s how our Almdudler gets its unique, refreshing, sweet-tangy taste; without preservatives or artificial flavours. Almdudler is certified as suitable for vegans with the European vegan label.
