Hazy, pale milky golden. Louches creamy white with water.
Aniseed and fennel with black liquorice, very gentle spice and dried orange zest. Water brings oak barky cracked black pepper spice and herbal complexity.
Aniseed, star anise and earthy liquorice. Water builds green fennel notes but go easy – too much water and you’ll turn bland. Tarquin recommends 5 parts water to 1 part pastis.
Star anise, then liquorice.
Closure: Wax-sealed synthetic cork stopper
