Anise or aniseed has been cultivated for probably 4,000 years, first in Egypt and the Middle East. Later, aniseed was brought to Europe for its medicinal value. In ancient times, anise was so highly prized that it was often used for tithes, offerings and payment of taxes in the Middle East.
The Romans often served spiced aniseed cakes at the close of parties and entertainment to avoid indigestion.
Charlemagne, in the ninth century, commanded that anise be grown on the imperial farms. Centuries later, King Edward IV used to sleep on bed linens that had been perfumed with anise.
Aniseed has a wide range of culinary applications, both sweet and savory. It is also used in confectionery and liqueurs.
Today, BARKLEYS Classic Aniseed combines the richness of this historic spice with the freshness of a mint.
