Jägermeister, or simply the Jäger, has a reputation for bringing out the drinker’s playful side–making it popular at frat parties.
Pronounced ‘yay-ger-my-stir,’ the Jäger is an amaro (Italian herbal liqueur) manufactured in Germany Wolfenbüttel, where there is even a Jägermeister guesthouse.
Its name takes inspiration from German hunters and literally translates to “master of the hunt”–thus, the deer on the famous red label.
The Jäger has a lower ABV of 35%, making it known as an after-dinner digestif.
The Germans fondly refer to it as “leberkleister,” which translates to “liver glue.”
What makes it unique is the spectacular blend of 56 herbs and spices.
Instead of drinking it straight up, it’s best to sip it slowly to enjoy the distinct flavors of licorice, star anise, aniseed, cinnamon bark, cardamom, galangal, ginger, ginseng, and bitter orange.
The recipe remains a top secret since Curt Mast first created it in his father’s vinegar factory in 1935.
The process takes over 365 days, including filtering, storing in oak barrels, and 383 quality checks.
