The peppermint liqueur is made by the Scharlachberg Distillery in Bingen, Germany. It has a strong candy-cane taste, and it has a high alcohol content at 50% alcohol by volume, (100 proof), compared to the 40% (or 80 proof) of most liquors. It is commonly served chilled, straight up, without a lime (in some cases as a digestif) or it can also be mixed to form various cocktails.
Rumple Minze was rated a 95 (out of a possible 100) by the Beverage Tasting Institute. The top market for this product is the United States. The success of their peppermint schnapps has led Rumple Minze to release two new flavors which include a berry flavored liqueur and a lime flavored liqueur, both of which are 100 proof.
The logo on the front of the bottle is a picture of a double-headed golden eagle. This symbol is a reference to the German coat of arms.
