Almdudler has both a carbonated and still form and is produced by adding secret herbs found in the alpine areas of Austria with water. It tastes a little like ginger ale but is more bitter with a hint of citrus and subtle herbal elements. Almdudler is a popular mixer with white wine (I tried it at a heuriger outside Vienna). It is a popular drunk as a refreshing less sweet soft drink.
A famous jingle “If they do not have any Almdudler, I go home again!” is recognised throughout Austria. The local pride is drawn out in the Tyrolean woman and lederhosen-clad man on the bottles.
