âBURRO BURRO means Butter Donkey. My grandfather, who lived in the middle of the Ibicencan campo, regularly liked to drink a glass of wine at his local bar. Home wasnât more than a few hundred yards from the bar, but the wine was so delicious there that he often needed assistance in getting back to it again, so – due to the frequency of the necessity – a donkey, or burro, was provided instead of a taxi. The burro was perfectly trained in only one thing – remembering the route from the bar back to my grandfatherâs finca. It quickly developed a reputation, and from then on was known as the BURRO BURRO, which loosely translates to Butter Donkey; in short, something that cleverly eases the drinking of delicious wineâ – Ali Coco Epps on the origins of BURRO BURRO
