One of the things I love about going to food expos is discovering new things – and during a coverage of this year’s Madrid Fusion, I discovered Intramuros.
Not the place, of course.
One of the newest products of the oldest distillery in the country, Destileria Limtuaco, Intramuros is a liqueur de cacao packaged in a matte bottle in a glorious serif font. Destileria may have several problems with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts over the use of the name, but whatever it will be called in the future, I’d definitely buy a bottle.
The drink is sweet and reminiscent of tablea chocolate – but with booze this time. It’s perfect as an after-dinner drink, a cross between a dessert and a cocktail.
