Description

Jägermeister is a 35% liqueur flavored with herbs. It is the flagship product of Mast-Jägermeister AG, headquartered in Wolfenbüttel, south of Braunschweig, Germany. Jägermeister's recipe is confidential.

It is a digestif spirit similar to other Central European stomach bitters, such as Gammel Dansk from Denmark, the Hungarian Unicum
, Gorki List from Serbia, or Czech Becherovka. In contrast to many such drinks, Jägermeister has a sweet flavor. On the web site, Mast-Jägermeister, it is suggested that the drink be kept in the freezer, typically -18 °C (0 °F), and "on tap" machines will cool it to between -11 °C to -15 °C (5 °F to 12 °F).


The original purpose of this concoction was medicinal; being used to cure everything from an incessant cough to digestive problems. It was used in World War II as a field anesthetic. In Germany, it is still widely recognized as a digestif, and is kept in many German households for such purposes, sometimes being irreverently called Leberkleister, or "liver-glue." It is also commonly used in small quantities around the home as an insect trap, as small flies and wasps are drawn to the sweet smell and taste of the drink.
