Served ice cold on the rocks or in a shot glass (or less fancy with a splash of red bull). – Jägermeister is one of Germany’s most famous exports.
It’s a complex and spicy liqueur with notes of ginger, cinnamon, star anise, green cardamom and orange peel. It’s comprised of 56 different natural ingredients creating a unique herbal digestif with a distinctive taste. Jagermeister always makes sure their product is of the highest quality and each batch undergoing 383 control checks.
Curt Mast was the original creator of the Jagermeister recipe and was a keen hunter which is reflected in the design of his bottle. The bottle features a cross with stag horns in the center. The stag and cross imagery is in reference to two patron saints of hunting Saint Hurbertus and Saint Eustace, who both experienced visions of being crucified in front of Stag’s antlers. According to Jagermeister, the Stag is a ‘symbol of preservation of quality and tradition.’
The bottle we are familiar with today was chosen of out hundreds, Curt Mast dropped them from a great height on a stone floor; the only one to survive was the one that survives today.
The classic way to serve Jagermeister is ice cold either on the rocks or in a shot glass. Evoking back to University days – it also goes down nicely with a splash of red bull!
