Have you every wondered (while under a Jäger-induced hallucination) why the labels got a deer? I have! And here is your answer direct from the source. This is taken from the Jägermeister website, enjoy.

Way back in the seventh century, a young lad named Hubertus was envied for his purity (remember, this is only a legend). Theoderich of Burgundy was one of these jealous sorts, and so waged war against Hubertus and his uncle, Pipin (when was the last time you spoke to your Uncle Pipin?). By defeating Theoderich, Hubertus proved himself valiant in battle and dashing in a codpiece, and so won the hand of the beautiful princess, Floribana. Together they lived happily with the benefits of wealth, good fortune, and clear skin.
Alas, alas, the good Princess soon fell ill and died. Sigh.

In his grief, Hubertus turned away from the sumptuous life of royalty and became a solitary figure, often going to the woods to hunt alone. During one of these hunting trips, Hubertus encountered a splendid stag with a cross that appeared to float between its antlers (and no, Hubertus had not been drinking at the time). The vision moved Hubertus to change his life. He gave all his material possessions to the poor, gave up his title, and founded several monasteries. After his death, Hubertus was made a saint and became the Patron Saint of Hunters.

Cheers mate, Enjoy!

I have to say I like Stoli vanilla. Great for mixing as well as sipping on ice. Too sweet for some however.

just got my hands on a bottle of stoli persik ( peach). So far only available in the states if/when this gets to canada it should makes a fairly big advance on a lot of the market held by alize. At 35 % this stuff is deadly . hard to make poor tasting drinks with and by mixing any of the sourpuss products with this (i like razz) you can offset the sweetness enough to make a lot of great tasting drinks.
