Licor de Hierbas Ruavieja
This week’s Bevvy of the Week is Licor de Hierbas Ruavieja. And I’m happy to share with you why I recommend this herbal liqueur from Spain.
How did I come across it? Well, Edwina was away in the North of Spain, Cantabria region for a few days and brought back a bottle for me to try. Lucky me!
Licor de Hierbas Ruavieja is like the Spanish equivalent to Grappa. The traditional name is Orujo. And like it’s equivalents around Europe and beyond – it’s a brandy made from wine, otherwise known as a pomace brandy.
This Spanish liqueur is very tasty. And it’s perfect tipple to serve after a meal. Best served chilled and drunk from a shot glass.
It’s sweet with soft mint and eucalyptus flavours. Herbal undertones also come through. Mouth filling, it really gets the taste bud going.
Licor de Hierbas Ruavieja is 30% abv and comes in a 70cl bottle. Edwina paid €9.20 for the bottle she bought in Spain so expect to pay no more than double this price if purchasing in the UK or Ireland.
