It all started and revolved around Allasch Castle, in Livonia about 40 kilometres from the Baltic Port of Riga. Originally the old family recipe of the Baron von Blanckenhagen was made for the enjoyment of their friends, a Kummel Liqueur called Allasch Kummel. An export firm in Riga, named "Mentzendorff" suggested to the Barons that they should make the Kummel for export. Other European Liqueur manufacturers began to imitate the liqueur and closely copied the label, without succeeding however to match the genuine 'finesse' of the original Mentzendorff Kummel.

Nowadays, the Allasch Kummel is known as Mentzendorff Kummel. It is produced at Saumur, in France, by the oldest distillery in the Loire Valley, The Combier distillery, which was founded in 1834. Twice distilled for an extra pure flavour. Made from caraway seeds, Mentzendorff Kummel is a natural digestif. It can be served straight from the fridge, with ice or in a variety of cocktails.
