Your drink tips from the Emperor!
Drink Tips for you! Taken from the Emperor Franz Josef.

Emperor’s Franz Josef’s personal valet always made sure that French Cognac, Red Hungarian Wine and Pilsner Urquel Beer were, always on hand.!When it came to drinks, Emperor Franz Josef  was a Feinschmecker! Feinschmecker is a German expression for Gourmet, a person who is an excellent judge of fine food and drinks.When it came to food, he ate anything they gave him.(From history archives, recorded during the Emperor’s long span of the rail travel).

Verbatim:“During Franz Josef’s short trips on the rail in his saloon cars, he only ate the meals brought from various station restaurants, along the way.The kitchen and dining cars were used only on a long official journey.

The reason was not just the Emperor’s notorious thrift, but also his infamous reputation to eat anything that was served.”

When it comes to the drinks, the Emperor Franz Josef II, was a “Feinschmecker” or a Gourmand of the best!  “Court master saw to it directly that in the Emperor’s saloon car there was always a bottle of French cognac available, as well as a bottle of Hungarian red wine and a bottle of Munich, later than Pilsner beer. Since the time of his visit to Pilsen in 1874, the Emperor drank no other beer than Pilsner Urquell (during the Emperor’s lunches beer was always served with the soup).

When the Emperor Franz Josef  tasted it first, he was pleased to remark: “It is peculiar that no brewery has so far been able to make such a good beer. The breweries at Schwechat and St.Marx have really invested much effort into their brewing undertaking.”


So war es moglich, die Reisekosten zu minimieren-es genugte nur entsprechenden Fahrkarten erster Klasse zu bezahlen. Bei kleinen Reisen as der Kaiser ausschliesslich die wahrend der Reise aus den Bahnhofrestaurants gebrachten Speisen;

der Kuchen- und Speisewagen wurden nur bei grossen offizielle Reisen eingereiht.

Grund dazu war nicht nur die Sparsamkeit, sondern auch die bekannte Unwahlsamkeit des Kaiser was das Essen betrifft; er as was ihm gebracht wurde. Es kam einmal vor, dass der Kaiser in der Nacht ein Glas Cognac wunschte, aber im ganzen Zug war kein Tropfen zu finden.

Von dieser Zeit an achtete der Hofkanzler darauf, dass im Salonwagen des Kaisers immer eine Flasche franzosischer Cognac, eine Flasche ungarischer Rotwein und eine Flasche Munchener, spater Pilsner Bier zur Verfugung steht.

Seit dem Besuch in Pilsen im Jahre 1874 trank der Kaiser ausschliesslich Pilsner Bier

(beim kaiserlichen Mittagessen wurde Bier immer zur Suppe serviert). Nach erster Probe bemerkte er damals: Es ist kaum verstandlich, dass es bisher keinem Brauhaus gelungen ist,

so gutes Bier zu brauen. Die Braushauser in Schwechat und St.Marx haben sich hierbei schon sehr viel bemuht.”


Do you feel like a Feinschmeker today?

Then go for it!  Treat yourself as an Emperor. Try to find your desirable food (including the one served in a railway restaurant, just like to the Emperor), select any red Hungarian wine, choose from a variety of French Cognacs that are widely available, and take the Pilsner Urquell beer with it! Then Bon Appetite. Enjoy it and fell like an Emperor Franz Josef.
Let us know about your selection of food, your pick of a red Hungarian wine and French Cognac.  Do not forget that  Pilsner Urquell beer goes well with any food!. What was your Feinschmeker’s experience like? We will read them all, sorry if we cannot reply to everybody.
