East Dundee tavern hears call for Jager more often than any other Illinois bar

Bandito Barney’s Beach Club & Bordello — the bar with a Mexican-meets-nerd sounding name that was formerly owned by an Irish-American who at one time was a model in Australia — is the biggest Illinois on-premise seller of Germany’s Jagermeister, one of the world’s leading brands of spirits.

To mark the success, the bar at 10 N. River St. will be offering retro, price rollback Jagermeister-related specials on Wednesdays, Aug. 21, Sept. 18 and Oct. 16.

According to Kevin Hagan of Sleepy Hollow, who is state manager for Sidney Frank Importing, the Fox Valley hotspot known for its expansive beer garden recently overtook Joe’s Brewery in the college town of Champaign for the honor.

For those who are unfamiliar with Jagermeister — which means master hunter in German — the potent potable is a blend of 56 herbs, roots, fruits and spices that is best served chilled. It comes in a green bottle with the stag and cross on the label that are a symbol of St. Hubertus, the patron of hunters. The 70-proof brand launched in 1935 and is still run by the founding Mast family. Legend has it Nazi Gestapo founder Hermann Goring was partial to it.
