Jägermeister (or Jaegermeister, in English) is a German liqueur maker who makes this brand that contain extracts of 56 different pieces of herbs. An alcoholic drink with 35% alcohol content, (known as digestif), this one is taken for digestion, after food. The bottle is green in colour.
After Jägermeister decided to create a racing team, the first few cars were painted in their bottle green colours. But Günter Mast who was then heading the firm, found the green colour not so appealing & attractive and so decided to use the orange colour after completion of 3 races. Since then, this colour is also known as Jaegermeister orange.
This model is a replica of the bus that was used for advertising this digestif drink.
