Pacharan - Sí!

As this blog's occasional roving alcohol correspondent at large, let me recommend this stuff to you, if you haven't come across it. I hadn't until my daughter returned from Spain with a bottle. I can report that as a summer digestif on ice, it's unbeatable. A fascinating flavour, and all too drinkable.


  1. Was warned years ago, never drink anything Spanish made with fruit but I guess sloes are borderline. We had an old Victorian recipe book with instructions for making sloe gin "take five gallons of gin", ouch.

  2. Hey Malty that excludes wine - a little harsh...

  3. Oops, I meant any spirits, sorry Mr Rioja
    Add to that any Portuguese spirits, particularly with chunks of fruit in the bottle, grade A paint stripper.
