Nine years later, after experimenting with different flavors and “traditional” mustards, he invented the Original Munich Sweet Mustard – the essential complement to Bavarian white sausages (Weiβwurst). Made from a of sharp dijon mustard, caramelized sugar, spirit vinegar and a secret spice mixture, this unique sweet mustard was awarded the Medal of Progress at the World Exhibition in Vienna and named purveyor to the court of King Ludwig II.
