Licor 43, currently the fastest growing premium liqueur in the world* will unveil the second edition of its annual Made of Spain Art limited Edition bottle.
Created to communicate Licor 43’s Spanish provenance by paying tribute to the creativity and craftsmanship of Spanish artists, the Licor 43 ‘Made of Spain Art Edition’ series began last year with a design inspired by the trencadis mosaic technique made famous by Gaudi in Barcelona. The 2019 edition travels to the middle of Madrid, to the Los Austrias quarter in the centre of the old town, which is today one of the best-known barrios in the city.
“The Made of Spain series celebrates the Spanish heritage and sociability that is at the heart of this product,” says Spirits Platform’s Marketing Manager, MT Jones. “This design captures the neoclassical style found in the famous, centuries-old tavernas of Spain’s capital which have witnessed the meetings of artists, kings and locals throughout history. The new design, encapsulating Spanish identity through art, not only gives our customers a way of increasing visibility for Licor 43 in a retail environment, it also offers Licor 43 lovers a limited edition, eye-catching, collectable version of their favourite liqueur which is perfect for gifting.”
The Licor 43 brand was born as a premium Spanish liqueur produced in Cartagena, Spain, using a secret Spanish family recipe of 43 natural ingredients, which includes selected Mediterranean citrus fruits and botanicals.
