German Liquor is Primed for the Big-Time

German liquor may not get the same widespread love as the famous brandy of France or bitter digistivi of Italy, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t delicious. Let’s take a more in-depth look at the category to see what it has to offer.

What is German liquor?

German liquor—sometimes called German liqueur—is any spirit produced in Germany. The category includes everything from excellent fruit brandy to herbal liqueurs like Jägermeister to other German liquors that even contain eggs (the most famous is from Verpoorten). German liquor is an incredibly versatile category of spirits.

Where does German liquor come from?

German liquor can come from anywhere within Germany. The country has such a long history of spirits production that German liquor is produced throughout the nation.

What does German liquor taste like?

It’s impossible to discuss German liquor in universal terms because there are so many different types that are produced. As a general (though certainly not universal) rule, German liquor tends to taste like whatever the main ingredient or ingredients happen to be, though, of course, with a unique twist. German cherry liqueur, for example, has distinct cherry notes. Depending on what else has been added to it, how the finished spirit has been aged, and how much alcohol is in the finish bottling, that cherry character can take on several unique expressions. The same goes for German herbal liquors, whose constituent blend of herbs and spices changes how each one expresses itself in the glass.

Is Jägermeister a German liquor?

Yes, Jägermeister is a German liquor, specifically a German herbal liqueur. It is commonly used as a digestive aid, or digestif in French, because of its bitter flavors. Just because it’s often used as a shot in college doesn’t mean that it’s not worth revisiting—Jägermeister is a complex, delicious German liquor!

What are popular brands of German liquor?

There are many popular brands of German liquor, including Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin, Rumple Minze, Asbach, Schladerer, and Barenjager, among many others.
