NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jagermeister, the iconic shot brand with a deep commitment to craft and heritage, is proud to announce a revolutionary new innovation – The Shotmeister. This single bottle tap machine, set to debut September 2013, is designed to bring the ice cold pour from the legendary Jagermeister Tap Machine into the home.
Sidney Frank Importing Company, Inc. introduced the first Jagermeister Tap Machine in 1993 and created the "ice cold shot" phenomenon. This not only brought the brand out of the cold box and onto the bar, but also made Jagermeister the first tapped spirit in the industry. With nearly 100,000 tap machines in bars and restaurants across the country, the both functional and iconic display unit has helped position Jagermeister as one of the leading shot brands, the #1 imported selling liqueur in the United States and the 7th largest selling premium spirit in the world.
Nobody ever bragged about their freezer, until now. Compact enough to fit under most kitchen cabinets, the Shotmeister is a must-have gift and home bar accessory that boasts a sleek silver and black design. This bold addition to the Jagermeister Tap Machine family is smaller and lighter than the in-bar Tap Machine but features the same state-of-the-art rapid cooling mechanism technology designed to chill and dispense Jagermeister at temperatures below zero degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, the Shotmeister is extremely energy efficient and consumes the same amount of electricity as just a 60 watt florescent light bulb.
"With the introduction of the Shotmeister, consumers can now recreate the experience of ice cold shots of Jagermeister out of the tap machine in their own home," says Amanda Blanco, Vice President of Marketing for Jagermeister at Sidney Frank Importing Company. "This new innovation is perfect for parties and at home entertaining as it ensures that each and every shot of Jagermeister is served at the appropriate temperature; ice cold."
The Shotmeister is designed to hold only a 750ml or 1L Jagermeister bottle. With no assembly required, the all-new Shotmeister is easy to operate and easy to clean. The Jagermeister Tap Machine and Shotmeister are manufactured and sold by Tap Machine, Inc. Suggested Retail Price is $199.00 (plus shipping and handling as well as tax where applicable) and comes with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty. To purchase the Shotmeister, visit www.tapmachine.com.
Jagermeister, which translates to "master hunter," is the #1 selling imported liqueur in the United States and one of the top shot brands in the world. The full-bodied flavor of Jagermeister, which includes cinnamon, star anise, ginger and cardamom, is a result of a lengthy maceration to extract aromatic compounds from a closely guarded recipe of 56 herbs, roots, blossoms and fruits, plus aging in oak casks for one year. The production process is exacting and includes sourcing the ingredients in their raw, unprocessed form, along with 383 quality checks to ensure its iconic taste profile. Jagermeister Liqueur is 35% Alc. /Vol. and imported exclusively by Sidney Frank Importing Company, Inc., New Rochelle, NY. Visit www.jager.com or www.facebook.com/jagerusa for additional information.
