Rumple Minze[pronunciation?] (also known as Lingus) is a German-style liqueur brand, best known for peppermint schnapps. The brand is owned by the holding company Diageo, based in London.[1]

The Rumple Minze peppermint liquor has a strong peppermint smell and 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 (in some cases as a digestif[2]) 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.[1] The United States is the top market for this product. 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 also 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.[dubious ]
