“Alter Schwede” is used as a term of surprise in Germany. “Words like ‘wow’ or ‘gosh’ would be the closest English equivalents.” So I guess Chris could have called me an “Alter Schwede” for dragging him in front of the camera so early on a Friday morning to drink a shot of “Alter Schwede”. LOL
Alter Schweder, the Herb Liqueur that I found in the Cape, is made by Franz Josef Blomendahl, dates back to 1648. Alter Schwede is an authentic liqueur, traditionally made with over 200 different herbs.
Alter Schwede will make the perfect addition to the schnapps line up of any decent German pub or restaurant in South Africa.
