What Does the Jagermeister Bottle Say?

The label of the Jägermeister bottle features the German inscription, “Das ist des Jägers Ehrenschild, Daß er beschützt und hegt sein Wild, Weidmännisch jagt, wie sich’s gehört, Den Schöpfer im Geschöpfe ehrt.” Jagermeister is produced and bottled in Germany.

The rough English translation for the German text on the Jägermeister label is: “It is the hunter’s honor that he protects and preserves his game, hunts sportsmanlike, and honors the Creator in His creatures.”

According to About.com, Jägermeister was first produced in 1935 although the actual recipe was inspired by a recipe dating back 500 years. Jägermeister means “master hunter” in English.
