Experience wild-fennel with our "Wagtail" aniseed spirit.
The main botanical behind this release is wild fennel which produces a delicate and mild aniseed-like note. The wild-fennel has been foraged by our head distiller David within Esperance.
This release features a sweet aniseed nose.
An initial flurry of aniseed-like fennel transitions into a complex medley of star anise and quandong in the mid-palat, before melting into a warm vanilla finish with hints of liquorice root.
We encourage you to experiment with pairing mixers and garnish, experimentation is part of the journey. Recommended pairings include ice and an orange wedge. Cola and lemon is another surprising mix.
