A Jägermeister and -18 degrees … At least if the company behind the advertisement for the famous liqueur may choose.

And yes, it is true. Jägermeister should be served cold, really cold. There is no problem to insert the bottle in the freezer overnight.

Jägermeister is a German liqueur containing not less than 56 secret herbs that will provide its successful taste. Mast-Jägermeister AG is the company behind the drink, and its made since a long time in the city of Wolfenbüttel in Germany. Jägermeister has a strength of 35 percent and is exported to many parts of the world.

The bottles are always dark green and sold in different sizes.

On the Border Shop in Germany, you may also find a lot of copies of Jägermeister, which sold for 5 Euros and up. The name is usually something like “Kräuterlikör” and is of varying quality, A common denominator for these is that they tend to taste way too much sugar.

Jägermeister means “master hunter” in German, and went on sale for the first time in 1934. In short, Jägermeister is manufactured in a way that all herbs are mixed together with alcohol and water, where it will serve for 2-3 days. Then the liquid is filtered and placed in wooden barrels for about a year. When a year has passed they add some sugar and caramel before it is bottled and shipped to the stores.
