The Salted Toffee Liqueur is an excellent pairing for mums with a sweet tooth that prefer something rich and intense to enjoy this Mother’s Day.

Created in collaboration with our friends Halen Môn in Anglesey, Aber Falls has developed a liqueur that pays tribute to the history of sea salt production in North Wales. Sourced directly from the Menai Strait, the clean, intense notes of Anglesey Sea Salt combine with rich toffee flavour for the perfect combination of salty and sweet.

This liquid has an ABV of 20.3% and a smooth and velvety palate with hints of burnt sugar. The liqueur leaves behind a lasting sugary finish, the ultimate beverage for the spring season.
