Allasch is a variety of Kümmel caraway liqueur. In 1823, Dutch Baron von Blanckenhagen established the Allasch distillery on his country estate near Riga, Latvia, so he could produce his family’s personal kümmel recipe: a distillate of cumin, caraway, and sugar beet spirit. Ludwig Mentzendorff first brought Mentzendorff Kummel to London in the 1850s.
