Our Raki Anise Seeds have been grown in the coastal province of Denizli, Turkey, for thousands of year. They are traditionally used in the distillation of raki, the world-famous Turkish spirit.

Tiny and intense, they're as sweet as candy, with notes of sesame and hazelnut making them perfect for cookies and cakes, as well as savory dishes. Sprinkle some on a roast chicken or fish with a little lemon juice and olive oil for a classic Mediterranean meal.

Our Raki Anise seeds are grown in the coastal province of Denizli, Turkey. Anise is native to the Mediterranean and has been cultivated there for thousands of years.

Raki, the classic Turkish anise-flavored liqueur, uses these sweet, nutty seeds for its characteristic licorice flavor and digestive properties. Many other liqueurs, including Arak, Ouzo, and Pastis, use them too.

The more you know: Anise and Star Anise are often confused because they share a few similarities, including their name and a licorice flavor. However, they are completely different spices. They each come from different parts of different plants (anise is a seed, while star anise is a fruit) that are native to different parts of the world. Are you in a bind and don't have anise? Reach for the Desert Fennel.

    Just delicious

    Fantastic! A blast of flavor. I made bizcochitos with this anise seed and dropped off a plate of cookies with various neighbors during the holidays. Multiple people told me the bizcochitos were their favorite.

    Anise seeds

    I bought a jar for the sole purpose of baking olive oil cookies and the anise perfumed the whole kitchen beautifully-perk! Super fresh seeds.

    Unbelievably sweet!

    Fabulous taste and very fresh. So much better than anything you buy in the store. They're excellent for popping into your mouth after a savory meal!

    Nice aromatic addition to rice

    A light sprinkle of these seeds into rice (before cooking) imparts a nice aroma to the finished dish. I also add a star anise pod and, sometimes, cumin seeds. Very nice!

    The best

    These are wonderful, so flavorful! I love anise and these seeds do not disappoint! From baking, to steeping these are sublime!
