Almdudler is a Austrian soft drink. The classic Almdudler consists of water, sugar and herb essences. Originally it was created as an alternative to alcoholic beverages or to mix it with them. It makes a claim to being the national drink of Austria. It is the second most popular soft drink in Austria after Coca Cola; 80 million liters are produced yearly. Developed in 1957 by Erwin Klein, the name is a shortened version of the phrase, auf der Alm dudeln. It is sold in traditional, light, still, and "g'spritzt" (mixed with mineral water) versions as well as mixed with beer as "Almradler".
