ANIS DE FLAVIGNY (www.anis-flavigny.com)

The Anis de Flavigny originated during the Roman era, when a traveler brought the aniseed to France. During the 8th century, monks in the Flavigny abbey conceived the idea of covering the seed with sugar. Today, in the very same abbey, 30 passionate confectioners continue to preserve this unique preparation, which has been passed down through generations.
