4 interesting things you probably didn't know about Jägermeister

If you've been out on a fun night in Nairobi, then you're not new to Jägermeister. But did you know that the drink has a very interesting history?

The recommended way to serve a shot of Jägermeister is ice cold, at -18°C

Jägermeister (YAY-gər-my-stər) is a German word that directly translates to "Hunt Master". The drink was originally enjoyed by hunters during celebrations.

In case you've never had a chance to inspect the Jägermeister bottle, its logo is a golden stag (male deer), on a field of green with a white cross shinning down. This logo is symbolic.

The striking logo is a nod to Saint Hubertus, the patron saint of hunters, metalworkers, opticians, and mathematicians.

It is said that when St Hubert received his calling, it was a Good Friday and he was out on a hunting expedition when he saw a deer with a crucifix between its antlers. This encounter is what is depicted on the Jägermeister logo.

A second interesting fact about the drink is that it is actually made of 56 selected herbs, blossoms, roots and fruits. It is entirely an herbal drink

The recommended way to enjoy a shot of Jägermeister is when it's ice cold, straight from the freezer, and at the precise temperature of -18°C.

In addition, the drink works well in cocktails whether it's a fruity combo or an expert pairing with other liquors, and even as the famous Jäger bomb.
