In fact, every ingredient in Licor 43 is sourced in one region of Spain except for the vanilla.

One of the best parts of this Tales event is that Licor 43 gives guests the chance to get behind the bar at Criollo to invent their own Licor 43 cocktails.‘s Tom Fischer mixes up a cocktail with Bourbon and Licor 43 and speaks with bartenders who are also creating new drinks from a table full of spirits, mixers and bitters.

The chance to get creative coupled with the tapas and the cochinillo (Spanish roast suckling pig) make this one of the highlights of our Tales of the Cocktail experience.
