Licor 43
Title Sponsor

Licor 43 is a premium liqueur produced in Cartagena, Spain, from a secret Spanish family recipe of 43 natural ingredients which includes Mediterranean citrus fruit and other selected botanicals. Its complex, but harmonic flavour profile can be perceived at four levels: the reminiscence of lively aromas of Mediterranean citrus gardens, the botanical and subtle touch of coriander, the sweet palate of mature fruit with nuances of vanilla, and the floral notes of Mediterranean orange and lemon blossom.
