With a distinctive flavour, similar to anise or fennel, licorice also adds fresh, bitter-sweet and woody-earthy taste. It adds base and length to a gin, as well as a softness and roundness. Licorice gives gin a pronounced sweetness, but also give gin a more viscous texture if used in high quantities.
Try it steeped in hot water for a delicious tea.
