TypeLiqueurs, herbal or spice-flavored
Proprietary for the most popular of German (Prussian) neutral spirit-based liqueurs, sweetened and potently flavored with honey. Compounded, it is said, since the late 15th century. The word translates as "bear hunter" and "baren" (bear) is always used as a prefix for German honey-flavored liqueurs. "Jager" says something of the age and folk origins of this spirit. Produced by Teucke & König, a company that once manufactured bear traps.
