10 Astounding Facts about Jagermeister


As part of the exploration into fine liquers, most Canadians have had some experience with the German juggernaut Jagermeister. It’s clear that there’s more to be curious about when it comes to this classic green bottle – especially when its icon name and bottle can be seen anywhere from chef menus to TV backdrops. Speaking of the bottle, 2017 brings forth a new redesign, including changes to its shape (taller with a squared off shoulder) and a bold logo type to provide depth to its dominant stature. With these new bottles already hitting shelves, it’s an opportune time to explore 10 unique facts that catapulted Jagermeister into stardom.

Howdy. I first started blogging on RAMONE.ca in 2009, with a dedicated focus on men's lifestyle and stories of inebriation. Shortly after, I was listed as a top Canadian blogger, and over the next decade, I've collaborated with hundreds of notable brands.

Then I grew up. As of late, I've graduated to writing about life experiences, well-researched opinions, and hopefully a few things you might find useful.

This is my memory vault.
