Liquorice – the root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra – is a sweet, woody botanical that has been used as a sugar alternative for centuries. Liquorice root has a very particular taste. It is like anise or meadowsweet but without the mentholic qualities. A soft, hay-like wood taste comes through, along with lively sugar. Distilled, the flavour doesn’t much change – it brings all of those qualities to a gin, and is also able to change the texture and mouthfeel of a gin, bringing oily, viscous qualities.
