Essential oils are crucial ingredients that can be extracted and distilled with alcohol. They can have quite a complex composition. The quantitative amount of a single component, however, does not necessarily reflect its importance in the overall flavour. This means that “the more, the better” doesn’t apply in this case. Sometimes a substance found in small quantities is much more important for the perceived aroma. In the case of the star anise, nature followed the adage and decided that the essential oil would mainly consist of trans-anethole. With its lingering sweet, liquorice-like, warm herby, spicy to slightly peppery notes, it also dominates our spirit made from organic Vietnamese star anise. Like fennel, bronze fennel, basil and tarragon, the oil also contains estragole (i.e. methyl chavicol). Something that all these plants have in common is a similar, pattern of components of the essential oil, which also differ in that each has its own unique variation and justification, which is also reflected in our spirits. Our star anise spirit will add that special something to jams, creamy soups (carrot, pumpkin), game, beef, fish or poultry dishes, desserts and cocktails, and not only during the Christmas season.
