Broken Pastis

Liquorice lovers; listen up. This naturally-flavoured infusion tastes just like black liquorice. Cleansing and refreshing, the result is well-worth the preparation for this unique drink.








  • 500 ml Broken Shed Vodka
  • 5 whole star anise, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon anise seeds
  • ¾ teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1 tablespoon liquorice root, dried and cut
  • 50 g sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water


Add the crushed star anise, anise seeds, and caraway seeds to a dry skillet and stir over medium-high heat until fragrant and toasted (about a minute).

To a glass container, add the liquorice root, toasted spices, and Broken Shed Vodka. Let sit at room temperature for 5 days, shake occasionally, then strain through a cheesecloth-lined sieve. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar and water and stir until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and stir in a ¼ cup of the vodka mixture. Let cool, then add the remaining vodka. Serve over ice alongside some hot mixed nuts with truffle honey and flaky sea salt.
