Anisette - Italian?

2top Nov 5, 2006 03:19 AM

Anisette is an Italian liqueur but the best are Marie Brizard (French) or Anis del Mono (Spain)
Does anyone know a good Italian brand?

    It is, you're correct. I just like it so I had to mention it. That's where the smile came in. I mentioned it in a separate thread, but Fernet Branca is another favorite. Not a true anisette, but it is Italian.

      That's cool, I'm a Pernod lover myself. I drink it and it transports me to the Parisian sun...sounds pretentious, but it does.

      I thought Pernod was French.

        anice luxardo and pernod (as they are both dry) would fall in the apperitif not the liqueur category.

            so where in the metro area could we get luxardo? i'd love to try both the anice and anisetta.

          Pernod :-) When only the best will do.
