Proof66 Notes

Barenjager liqueur is translated loosely as "bear trap" or "bear hunter" liqueur, which becomes clear enough when you think of a honey-based liqueur. While the more well-known honey liqueur is a legacy stretching back to the 15th century medieval era of German bear trappers. 


About the Producer: 


Schwarze & Schlichte is a the distilley that produces the spirit, who first came to being in 1664 and have been making sweetened liqueurs ever since. They in turn own the Tuecke & Koenig Bear Trap Company, who first originally produced the liqueur. The label itself is owned by the Sidney Frank Importing Company

You can taste the real honey in this product. And they have a new item called Honey Bourbon. Yum!

Wow! Nice to stumble about something special. This is a must have for creative cocktail mixing. A vodka based, spicy honey sweetener. Great as straight-up sipper or shot too and Barenjager sour with a squeeze of lemon and lots of ice is plain... Wow! (Here we go again)

Spicy honeyed notes with pleasant cinnamon, cloves, allspice, cardamom, gentian and or baerwurz notes. Very thick entry with sweetness and fair amount of spice slight tail of aromatic bitter with lingering finish/aftertaste with mild alcohol presence.
