Get lively this summer with cocktails made with big brand spirits Jägermeister Spice, and Courvoisier, both available from your local retailer. Original Jägermeister is a unique herbal spirit developed from a secret recipe by Curt Mast, and launched in Germany 80 years ago. The liqueur is made by Mast-Jägermeister SE, in Wolfenbüttel Germany using an original secret blend of 56 different, hand-selected herbs, blossoms, roots and fruits from all over the world. Original Jägermeister contains 35% alcohol by volume.

Jägermeister Spice contains 25% alcohol by volume and is the newest addition to the family. Based on the original iconic recipe, it is sweeter, with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon.
