Bottle of 1L. dry anise Machaquito distilled by Hijo De Rafael Reyes. 55% Vol.
Anise is a brandy made from matalahúga or matalahúva, a small seed of a medium shrub that ceased to be wild, to, due to demand, be grown as a preferred product in agriculture.
Natural product obtained from double distillation, very slow, alcohol, demineralized and decalcified water, sugar, aniseed grains matalahúga and... something special. Made of copper stills entirely by hand, using olive wood or holm oak as a heat source. Colourless, genuine and with an intense smell of matalahúga.
It has magnificent properties that stimulate appetite, is digestive – check it before eating or after a copious meal – and diuretic. It can be taken only in short, natural or cold glass; or in a long glass mixed a part in three or four of very cold water and ice and a little sugar to taste – the popular "popcorn" – and always in small amounts. A few drops in the coffee, infusions, ice cream and pastry are admirable.
