Vegan Horchata Cream Liqueur that was just launched in the US


Madrid-based Zamora Company recently launched their popular vegan Licor43 Horchata at retailers in the United States. In 2020, Zamora reformulated its Licor43 Horchata (formerly known as “Orochata”) to be completely vegan, promoting the alcoholic drink with a clever slogan that read, “I’m so vegan, I don’t even call my boyfriend honey . ” The vegan horchata contains 16 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) and is made according to a recipe that is inspired by the Valencian horchata and contains tiger nut milk, cinnamon and lemon.

“For people who like Licor 43 and for those who appreciate the taste of high quality cream liqueurs, we are very excited to introduce Licor 43 Horchata here in the US,” said Bill Corbett, CEO of Zamora Company USA. “Licor 43 Horchata offers a much-needed dairy-free and vegan option among cream liqueurs, a growing category that has recently received considerable consumer interest.”

Vegan cream liqueurs

In addition to the vegan Horchata from Licor43, a growing number of vegan cream liqueurs has recently come onto the market. In May 2016, Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur was launched as a dairy-free alternative to Irish Baileys cream and was enthusiastically received by the vegan community. While the brand had no original intention of launching a vegan product, the support of those interested in a cruelty-free Irish cream drink prompted Baileys to investigate the formulation of Almande – where the company discovered the presence of beeswax. Baileys reformulated the creamy beeswax-free drink and received vegan certification for Almande in January 2017, which is now available in several countries including the US and UK.

In 2018, UK-based entrepreneur Peter Smith developed his own Baileys-inspired vegan creamy liqueur in two flavors, Besos de Oro and Besos de Chocolate, under his Besos brand. This liquor contains brandy with tiger nut milk and is currently marketed in the UK and Australia.

This summer, Finnish gin company Arctic Blue Beverages will launch Arctic Blue Oat – the world’s first vegan oat-based gin liqueur. The new alcoholic beverage has a smaller carbon footprint than beverages made from dairy products of animal origin and benefits from the booming oat milk industry, which has doubled from USD 12 billion to USD 24 billion in the last five years.
