Angelica Root 100g Product of Netherlands
Genus name is Angelica Archangelica.
Angelica is believed to be a native of Syria but grows wild in most of the Nordics counties, primarily Finland. It is widely cultivated in France, Germany, Romania and some East Asian Countries.
Historically it has been used primarily as a medicinal plant.
The root of angelica is the part most commonly used in gin production, but can also be found in many Vermouths and Bitters. It is also widely used in herbaceous liqueurs such as Fernet and Chartreuse. Angelica is regarded by many as the third major ingredient in Gin, following juniper and coriander seeds.
It’s a little bitter and a little herbal, and is reminiscent of wormwood. When used in distillation the herbal tones carry through to the nose, with a faintly nettle-like smell. Interestingly, the flavour of angelica can sometimes be mistaken for that of juniper berries even though they are completely unrelated.
