Default Spanish Store??

Does anyone know of a Spanish grocery/liquor store in the "Valley"? In particular, I am curious about a Spanish liquor, similar to Anisette; comes in a bottle with an orange label, and a picture of the devil with a pitchfork. Anyone have experience with this?

Is this it?

CocktailDB: The Internet Cocktail Database | Anis del Mono

It came up on this site when I googled it so even if they can't sell it to you maybe they can tell you where to get it. Now you've got me intrigued. Sounds good.

This has to be the drink I was told of. While not, orange, and not the devil with a pitchfork, my buddies may be less than accurate. Apparently, the picture is that of the head of distillery owner Vincente Bosch on the body of a monkey. The drink---"Ojen", may also be a possibility. I can't find much current info on this, though.

That's funny. I used to work as a schoolteacher in Badalona where that particular anisette is made. I never tried it though.

My favorite liqueur when I was there was Ponche Caballero (http://www.spiritscorner.com/scriptsing/buscar.asp?K=Detalle&IdProducto=4038 - broken link)

My salary, if you care to compare Sheriff, was 700 euro a month under the table - no benefits. Maybe CCSD can switch to such a policy!

You might check with Lee's Discount Liquors. Their selection is incredible, and their beer selection alone is a thing of beauty.
