Other Info:
Goldschläger is a Swiss cinnamon schnapps (43.5% alcohol by volume or 87 proof; originally it was 53.5% alcohol or 107 proof), a liqueur with very thin, yet visible flakes of gold leaf floating in it. The actual amount of gold is extremely small and could be considered negligible: there is currently less than a tenth of a gram (0.1 g) of gold flakes in a 750 mL bottle of Goldschläger, which, as of February 6, 2012, amounts to about $6.20 USD on the international gold market. Despite being first produced in Switzerland during the 1990s, Goldschläger is a product of Italy and the brand is owned by Diageo. The German word Goldschläger designates the profession of gold leaf makers, who beat bars of gold into micrometre-thin sheets. A few years after its introduction, Goldschläger was reformulated to contain less gold due to some alleged accounts of individuals suffering allergic reactions.
