Launched in 2016 (with the name Orochata), this extension to the Licor 43 brand was inspired by the popular Spanish drink horchata and is based on a traditional recipe from Valencia using tiger nuts, cinnamon and citrus.
Best kept in a refrigerator and served over ice. Be sure to shake the bottle before use.

In January 2020, the previously named Orochata was renamed Horchata and re-formulated so this vegetable-based liqueur is now free of lactose and milk proteins. The new label confirms the liqueur being dairy-free and suitable for vegans.

It's worth also mentioning for those needing to avoid nuts that tiger nuts are not actually nuts but are in fact tubers that have a sweet nut-like taste.
