Rumple Minze - Drink Secrets

Rumple Minze

Rumple Minze Representing Their German Heritage In Bars Around The World

Rumple Minze is a tasty concoction of the London based alcoholic beverage holding company Diageo, which has a German-style liqueur taste which is all its own. It is best known for their version of peppermint schnapps and has made their name as a well beloved spirit which is consumed straight up most of the time in a beverage called a "shot." Made in Germany by the Scharlachberg Distillery, it has an extremely high alcohol content at 50% by volume or 100 proof.

Not Only Just A Signature Drink, But In A Signature Bottle As Well

The taste of a Rumple Minze drink, whether enjoyed alone, or mixed within a drink is unmistakeable and unparalleled to any other drink on the market. It has a signature taste of heavy peppermint, allowing it to be enjoyed without a mixer, but it also has a signature bottling label. The logo on the bottle is one that stands alone as much as the drink itself. It is symbolized as a double-headed golden eagle, which is in reference to the German coat of arms. It is a symbol of courage and heritage that sets its look apart just as its taste sets it apart.

How It Is Enjoyed

Rumple Minze is a world renowned spirit which exemplifies all the flavors of its German heritage. It can be served straight up as a shot or can be enjoyed in various cocktails. It is a highly loved drink worldwide, but tends to have its place among the American population especially. It makes a great "shooter" specifically because of its stand alone flavor and high alcohol content.

Its Calorie Content Leaves Room For More
