Licor 43 Original 70cl
A gloriously golden, sweet and delicious taste of Spain
Licor 43 Original
This Spanish liquer was first produced by the Zamora family in Spain, Licor 43 has a a history which goes back to 1946. In fact, it was inspired by a golden and aromatic elixir called Liqvor Mirabilis which was banned by the Romans!
With the arrival of tourism in the 60's the world discovered Licor 43, and it truly became a taste of Spain to many. Now in the 21st century, Licor 43 is available in well over fifty countries, and is the most international Spanish liqueur.
Licor 43 liqueur is exceptionally smooth, and has a instantly recognisable golden colour. The name hints at the recipe, with there being 43 all natural ingredients involved in its creation.
The bright golden hue of the drink really does reflect its Mediterranean heritage, evoking feelings of sun drenched golden beaches.
Whilst Licor 43 is a secret blend, it has a complex flavour profile. It is sweet, with a strong blend of citrus. There is a mild spiciness, with a touch of coriander, and floral notes from soft orange and lemon blossoms. There are botanical notes, and a hint of fruity warmth from ripe fruit.
Once blended, the liqueur is rested between 6 and 9 months, so as to develop the flavours.

Licor 43 is extremely smooth, so very easily drunk on its own or over ice. But for those of you a little more adventurous, or who want to try something new - we have three cocktail options.
For a Ginger hit, try a Ginger 43. In a glass filled with ice, add 50ml of Licor 43 and 200ml of Ginger Ale (We like Double Dutch for this). Add the juice of half a lime and stir gently. Garnish with a slice of lime.
For a deliciously fruity and sweet warm drink (perfect for cold days / evenings), try a Hot Apple 43. Heat 150ml of apple juice with a stick of cinnamon in it (warm it, don't boil!). Add the licor 43 in and remove the cinnamon stick. Pour into a glass. If you're feeling decadent, garnish with some whipped cream, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Or lastly, for a really refreshing citrus hit, try a Mediterranean Breeze. Fill a small glass with crushed ice, and pour over 50ml of licor 43 and 25ml of Limoncello. Stir, and then garnish with a twist of lemon peel.
