Bear Killer Honey Infusion

Baronjaeger roughly translates as “Bear Hunter”. It is an infusion that German hunters would have at hunting camps. While the commercial version is pretty good, it’s a bit harsh for my taste. This is my version that is really, really close to identical but with less harshness. 



  • 250 ml 40% neutral spirit
  • 4.3 oz Acacia Honey (by weight)
  • 1/4 vanilla bean
  • 1 clove
  • 1 slither mace
  • 1/4 inch of long pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp glycerin 


  1. Add all ingredients to a jar and swirl to completely mix honey. 
  2. Allow to infuse for 1 week. 
  3. Strain spices out into a new container.
  4. (Optional) Store in freezer until particulates fall out of solution.
  5. Pour clear solution into show bottles. 
  6. Enjoy over ice!
