Jägermeister, which translates to “master hunter,” is the #1 selling imported liqueur in the United States and one of the top shot brands in the world. The full-bodied flavor of Jägermeister, which includes cinnamon, star anise, ginger, orange and cardamom, is a result of a lengthy maceration to extract aromatic compounds from a closely guarded recipe of 56 herbs, roots, blossoms and fruits, plus aging in oak casks for one year. The production process is exacting and includes sourcing the ingredients in their raw, unprocessed form, along with 383 quality checks to ensure its iconic taste profile. Jägermeister Liqueur is 35% Alc. /Vol. and imported exclusively by Sidney Frank Importing Company, Inc., New Rochelle, NY. Visit www.jager.com or www.facebook.com/JagerUSA for additional information.
