Cuarenta Y Tres, the name of this yellow Spanish liqueur means forty-three, and happily, for us Anglo-Saxons, it also goes by the more pronounceable, Licor 43. Not entirely coincidentally, this vanilla-flavoured liqueur is made from 43 different herbs and spices from all over the Mediterranean.
Licor 43 was first commercially produced in the early 20th century by Diego Zamora and continues to be made by his decedents. The 43 herbs and spices which flavour this liqueur remain a closely guarded secret, but five are known: orange, vanilla, lemon, coriander and tea.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/02/2012


Clear, bright golden yellow.


Fragrant vanilla crème anglaise with faint cocoa and light pepper spice.


Sweet, lightly syrupy but with a spicy balancing edge. Richly honeyed vanilla and cocoa powder with a minty freshness.


Vanilla, toffee, dark chocolate and creamy stewed fruit.
