Pronounced “YAY-gÌä‰ã¢r-my-stÌä‰ã¢r” this German liqueur is made with 56 herbs and spices that combine to give Jägermeister its distinctive taste. The secret recipe is closely guarded by the distillers but they’re willing to share a few of the ingredients they source from around the world: cinnamon-bark from Ceylon, bitter orange skins from Australia, santal from East India, and ginger roots from southern Asia. The most prominent and strong flavors in this digestif liqueur are licorice and anise.
Introduced in Germany in 1935 the creator, Curt Mast, was a hunting enthusiast. The logo depicts a large stag head with antlers that symbolizes the meaning of the name “Jägermeister” which translates to “Hunting Master”.
This strong liqueur is often kept in freezer and served as a shooter in a frosty shot glass. It can also be mixed into cocktails.
