Jagermeister is a German bitter-sweet herbal liquor. It has a syrupy sweetness balanced by spice and peppery spirit.
Jagermeister, the liquor with an unpronounceable name is made with 56 herbs, fruits, roots, and spices at a strength of 35% ABV.
The original distiller was an enthusiastic game hunter, hence the name, which translates to ‘master hunter’ or ‘master of hunt’. Some aspect of this is also visible in the brand’s logo.
It has heavy scents of menthol, cloves, cinnamon, and ginger. Jagrmeister has a fully flavoured taste, wonderfully complex with cola cubes.
Some of the ingredients such as the menthol, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and gentian leave a long, mentholated aftertaste with mild alcoholic presence.
To best enjoy this drink, serve as cold as you possibly can; on the rocks or chilled.
