Translated literally, Jägermeister means master of the hunters. That is why in its label appears a Christian cross on a deer. The cross and the deer are a reference to the stories of St. Hubert and St. Eustatius, patron saints of hunters.
In addition, the bottle contains a poem by Oskar von Riesenthal which says: 'It is the honour of the hunter to protect and care for his prey, to hunt chivalrously and to honour the Creator in his hunting'.
Jägermeister was originally created as a festive hunting drink that over the years has become an iconic liquor with a living, rich and varied history, a perfect blend of 56 ingredients.
The best herbs, flowers, roots and fruits from all over the world are used in its elaboration, united to form four different macerations that are then combined thanks to modern alchemy.
The secret recipe of Jägermeister 1L results in a liqueur with a unique and different sensory profile where sweet, bitter, citrus, spicy and herbaceous aromas predominate, which after passing through the house's German oak barrels Mast Jägermeister create a simply perfect symphony.
