The brand started in 1832 at Klagenfurt, named after the founder Sebastian Stroh. It was awarded a gold medal at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris. Today Stroh is available in more than 40 countries. The overproof versions are seldom drunk neat, but used for the concoction of Jagertee, of punch (especially the Feuerzangenbowle variation) or a Flaming B-52 cocktail. Stroh is also an important ingredient for cakes and pastries of the Austrian cuisine. As the state of Austria–Hungary had no access to colonies in tropical regions, rum producers originally tried to replace the sugarcane molasses aroma by a mixture of flavorings and dyes added to a diluted ethanol basis, referred to as Inländer-Rum ("domestic rum"), a substitute that over the years became a specialty.
