Anis de Flavigny
This delicately flavored French candy is manufactured in the picturesque village of Flavigny, Burgundy, by a small family-owned company using the same recipe since 1591.
Tradition states that a Roman traveler brought a magic seed back from Syria to modern-day France. The little piece of magic, the aniseed, was later cultivated in the village of Flavigny-sur-Ozerian, coated with sugar and offered to guests as early as 1591. Today, a team of twenty-five villagers still produce the famous Les Anis de Flavigny candy using the traditional methods passed down from generation to generation.
The small 2 mg anise seed undergoes several delicate processes over a period of 15 days before it finally gets transformed into a perfectly shaped, 1 gm Anis de Flavigny Mint. The candy is all-natural and contains no artificial colorants or flavoring, no fat or alcohol and no GM ingredients.
The candies are packed in vintage decorative oval or round tins, based on real designs used by old generations of Anis de Flavigny makers at the Flavigny Abbey, that add a lovely touch to your decor long after you have finished the contents. The decorative boxes, which seemingly has always depicted the love story between a young sheperd and his loved one, also make delightful additions to a gourmet gift basket for any occasion. Perfumed with natural flavors of orange, mint, licorice, rose, lemon, and violet, Les Anis de Flavigny candy still delights today as it has for centuries.
