Orris Root Whole – 50g

Orris root is a term used for the roots Iris germanica and Iris pallida. Once important in western herbal medicine, it is now used mainly as a fixative and base note in perfumery, the most widely used fixative for potpourri. Orris is also an ingredient in many brands of gin. Orris Root is used in both the production of gin and in perfumery and is well known for it’s floral qualities but more importantly the ability to fixate flavour and smell within a bottle of Gin.

Used in small quantities, but found in so many gins, Orris root imparts clean floral aromas and mouth filling parma violet sweet and woody flavours.

Distilled, orris root retains its floral notes, but it also carries an earthy, dusty sweetness that falls somewhere in the middle of grass and hay. The nose is dry, sweet and clean, while the mouth is strong, sweet and woody – similar in taste to liquorice sticks.
