  Killepitsch, Düsseldorf, Germany
by Zandra

Düsseldorf has more than Altbier… If you like shots, you ought to give the Killepitsch a try! It’s a 42% strong liquor made out of 98 different herbs, berries and fruits. Personally I think it tastes like a really bad cough medicine, so whenever I “have to” drink it, I always knock it down at once… But don’t you worry; many Düsseldorfer don’t even know about the Killepitsch, so you can simply forget that you ever read this and just stick to the Altbier…- it’s the most famous (and best tasting) drink from Düsseldorf anyway… :-)

There’s a small Killepitsch bar in the Altstadt with a shop next to it, where you can buy your own bottle of Killepitsch…a souvenir for someone who deserves it???!!! :-) It’s also possible to order both the liquor and Killepitsch gear on their homepage, where you’ll also find some cocktail recipes as well as the amusing Killepitsch story.
