Slo de Vie Distillery – Casa De Aguardente is proud to present the ancient way of making Aguardente Anise. Just two ingredients are used: grape spirit and anise seeds. Both are distilled together using a traditional copper pot still. The resulting spirit is subtle, aromatic and deeply comforting!
It is customary to mix the spirit with water in a glass at which point it will turn into a light milky color. Aguardente Anise pairs well with mussels, scallops, bacalao, feta and goat cheese with basil and olives. It is nice to sip at the end of a meal, or any other time! Aguardente Anise is our way to pay respect to the old Portuguese and Azorean traditional favorite libation.
