Anisette is predominantly favored by the "licorice"-favored essential oil anethole elaborated from anise seed. Vitae Spirits Anisette is reminiscent of European anisette that has a relatively high alcohol content with less sugar, which allows the herbal qualities to shine. With a slight touch of citrus, our Anisette carries a brightness that lingers on the palate. Just close your eyes, taste, and envision basking in the sunshine at a cafe along the Mediterranean.
TASTING NOTES & USES:
Enjoy our Anisette by pouring it over ice and then slowly adding water to taste, yielding a palate-cleansing aperitif. Anisette's are used in many classic cocktails and can substitute for absinthe, pastis, or ouzo. Examples of tasty anisette cocktails include the Sazerac, General Lee, Baltimore Bracer, or Cafe de Paris.
