anise F


This name derives from the Latin “Anĭsum”, which in turn derives from the Ancient Greek ánison (ἄνισον). Anise, also called aniseed, is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae native to the eastern Mediterranean region and Southwest Asia. Its flavor has similarities with some other spices, such as star anise, fennel, and liquorice. Anisette is an anise-flavored liqueur that is consumed mainly in Spain, Italy, Portugal, and France. It is colorless and, unlike some other anise-based liqueurs, contains no licorice. It is sweeter than most anise- flavored liqueurs.
