  • Additional Information

    Upon opening the bag you will really appreciate the power of this herb. Intense aromas of fresh liquorice, sarsaparilla may come to mind. Be careful not to add to much of this potent herb as it can quickly dominate any gin or other dish you add it to, but once you have that perfect balance, it creates a richness that is hard to recreate with any other spice.
