a) Color

Aniseed honey has a reddish amber colour.

b) Aroma

Its aroma is mild and very much reminiscent of the aroma of the aniseed drink. This characteristic aroma is due to a compound found in aniseed called anethole.

c) Plant of anise or “matalahuva”

An herb native to southern Europe and the Mediterranean basin, which has been used for centuries as a culinary and medicinal plant.

In gastronomy it is widely used both as a condiment in bakery and confectionery and to make the well-known alcoholic drink called anise.
