Spain's bestselling export liqueur, which is distributed in more than 80 markets worldwide, Licor 43 remains a family-owned business and the recipe is closely guarded - only five ingredients are known: lemon, orange, vanilla, coriander, and tea.
Also known as Cuarenta y Tres, which translates to forty-three, the Spanish vanilla liqueur infuses 43 different ingredients gathered from the Mediterranean region, from citrus to spices.
Following the sourcing of ingredients, the flavour is extracted during maceration. The infusion then rests in stainless steel tanks for up to nine months.
Once rested, the liquid is put through a cold treatment at -5 degree Celsius for five days. The infusion is finally micro-filtered which achieves the liquid's golden-colour and smooth texture. The liqueur is then bottled at 31% ABV.
