Liquorice – the root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra is a sweet, woody botanical that has been used as a sugar alternative for centuries. Liquorice root carries a somewhat unique taste; it’s like anise or meadowsweet but without the mentholic qualities. A soft, hay-like wood taste comes through, along with a loud, bright, crystalized sugar.
Distilled, the flavor doesn’t much change – it brings all of those qualities to a gin, and also has a very powerful capacity to change the texture and mouthfeel of a gin, bringing oily, viscous qualities.
