    Found website where you can order stuff from Spain:

    Is this what your bottle looks like?
    http://www.productsfromspain.net/Buy_Licor_de_Hierbas_from_Spain/Buy_El_Afilador_Licor_de_Hierbas_files/El_Afilador_Licor_de_Hierbas_big.jpg

    If it is - then this is what the site says about it:

    El Afilador licor de hierbas is a liquor obtained from the distillation of the pomace of the grape. El Alfilador is a very popular beverage in the northeast part of Spain.

    Doesn't say much more tho!

    But certainly no mention of Vodka!

    El Afilador licor de hierbas is a liquor obtained from the distillation of the pomace of the grape. El Afilador is a very popular beverage in the northeast part of Spain, especially in Galicia, Castilla y Leon, and Cantabria (mainly in the valley of Liebana), where it has become an artisan craft for some families from Spain.

    thats what it says on bottle, waitin for phone to charge so i can post pic aurgh its disapeering b4 my eyes and i dont even know what it is :thumbsup: :oops:

    El Afilador I think is the brand name.
    If it smells like liquorice etc it's probably Anis. (Anisette)
    If your drinking it .......................................










    Good Luck !

    I've put the above into a couple of spanish translators on the web - and these are the only two vaugely useable results!

    espirituoso elaborated with neutral brandy of orujo and alchol of agricola origin

    or

    spirits prepared with firewater of residue and alchol neutral of agricultural origin

    :thinking: :?

    Does it taste nice?

    Seems to be going down well! ! :giggle:
