500ml Finocchietto bottle
Aniseed is a polarising flavour. There are those that loath anything that taste of liquorice. But my Mum absolutely loves it, she’s not a big drinker but her go-to digestivo is a glass of sambucca.
When the opportunity came up to collaborate with Mic from Sirocco South to put together a wild-foraged fennel liqueur I jumped at it.
Finocchietto is a favourite limited release, it delivers a fresh yet warm vegetal aniseed flavour. It works beautifully as a digestivo, but can also freshen up aperitivi cocktails as well as a replacement in classic Absinthe cocktails like 'Death in the Afternoon'.
Osare Finocchietto won a gold medal at the 2021 Tasting Australia Awards.
Pale cloudy green due to the trans-anethole (or ouzo) effect.
Aromatic and fresh aniseed, hints of the underlying warmth.
A slight sweetness and the unmistakeable fresh fennel delivers beautiful clean vegetal aniseed flavour. Some warmth builds from the alcohol base which is complemented by an underlying toasty warmth.
Crisp and refreshing.
