5.8.18 Bodegas Álvaro Domecq Launch New Liqueur
Alvaro Domecq may be 78 years old, but he is still active. His bodega has just launched a new product called Waler 19 which is a bottled cocktail inspired by the classic Pisco Sour cocktail he had enjoyed in South America. The bittersweet product is based on Jerez Brandy holandas with a dash of Angostura, lime, a little brown sugar and two other secret ingredients. Waler is a pure breed of Arab horse, a passion of Don Álvaro, who used to be a famous rejoneador (horseback bullfighter), and the 19 refers to the alcoholic strength. This innovative drink can be enjoyed as a shot, with lots of ice or as a mixed drink, ideally with something citric and perhaps some mint. Perfect for summer sipping. The stunning bottle design was used in a fashion competition for the best matching dress.
