- The word Jägermeister in German means "expert hunter". The Jägermeister logo, the head of a stag with a glowing cross between the antlers, is a reference to the story of Saint Hubert.
The company was founded in 1878 by Wilhelm Mast. In 1934, the recipe for the herbal liquor was developed, and the product was introduced to the German market in 1935. The original purpose of this concoction was medicinal; being used to cure everything from an incessant cough to digestive problems. In Germany, it is still widely recognized as a medicine and is kept in many German households for such purposes, sometimes being irreverently called Leberkleber, or "liver-glue".
In 1970 it was exported to 60 countries. In the United States, it became popular with the wild partying of heavy metal bands like Metallica, Pantera and Slayer.
Contrary to popular rumors in the U.S., Jägermeister doesn't contain deer blood nor any extracts of illegal drugs.

STONE SOUR LEADS THE TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUESTS LACUNA COIL AND SHADOWS FALL
(New Rochelle, NY) – Jägermeister is ready to rock once again with the latest installment of the Jägermeister Music Tour! Stone Sour will lead the charge with their first headlining tour in support of their new album COME WHAT(EVER) MAY with special guests Lacuna Coil and Shadows Fall. The Tour kicks off on March 23rd in St.Paul, Minnesota
Fresh from their sold-out European/UK tour, Grammy-nominated Stone Sour is primed to capture the attention and the hearts of the rock ‘n roll masses. The band is a multi-faceted hard rock force of nature whose twisting melodies run the gamut of emotions. Stone Sour were the band to see at last summer’s Family Values Tour where they performed with Korn and The Deftones, and, more recently, the band toured with Disturbed to rave reviews. Their latest album, Come What(ever) May (Roadrunner), is certified gold and on its way to platinum.
"This has been something we have been looking forward to for a very long time.” says Stone Sour vocalist, Corey Taylor. “Having done this tour before, I can honestly say it's like nothing I've ever experienced. It's our time, and we're coming for you.”
Fronted by Cristina Scabbia, one of hard rock’s most admired vocalists, Lacuna Coil has firmly established itself as a force not only in their native Italy, but around the world. After first making waves with Comalies (Century Media Records), powered by the hit singles “Swamped” and “Heaven’s A Lie,” and backed by aggressive touring that included a breakthrough second-stage slot on Ozzfest, the band returned in 2006 with the acclaimed Karmacode, which reached the Billboard Top 30. Following a sold-out spring tour alongside Rob Zombie and a performance of Karmacode's debut single “Our Truth” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Lacuna Coil returned to Ozzfest – this time, on the main stage, where Scabbia became the first female to perform in a decade.
“It’s about time!” says Scabbia about being part of the Jager Tour. “It'll be a blast, and you guys CAN’T miss it cause it's gonna be the tour of the year! See you all there… spread the word...and horns up, my friends!”
Following an amazing year that brought forth a Grammy nomination, a spot on the main stage at Ozzfest, 250,000 sales of their latest album, and much more, Shadows Fall refuse to rest on their laurels. The band is making their Atlantic Records debut with the release of Threads of Life. The hotly-anticipated release, produced by Nick Raskulinecz, will coincide with the Tour. The album showcases the band’s roots, which were built both on thrash metal and undeniable, crushing melodies.
Brian Fair of Shadows Fall says “After spending most of the past year trapped in the practice space and the studio, everyone in Shadows Fall is extremely excited to finally be getting back on the road! We plan on releasing a year of pent up energy on stage and unleashing a few new songs from our upcoming album “THREADS OF LIFE.” We are really looking forward to teaming up with our good friends in Stone Sour and Lacuna Coil for an amazing tour. Time to put the Jagermeister on ice and line up the shots because its time to party with Shadows Fall!”
“We as a company have a lot of respect for hard rock and metal music and also a lot of respect for Stone Sour and what they have accomplished,” says Rick Zeiler, Director of Marketing and Brand Development for Jägermeister. “We have worked with both Lacuna Coil and Shadows Fall for many years through our band sponsorship program, and both of these bands know how to represent Jägermeister. It's nice to have family as part of one of our music tours! With this lineup and Jägermeister’s signature support, this tour will be one of the biggest of the season!”
The Tour will rock through May and each show will be rounded out with a local Jägermeister band. Going
