These seeds are not typically used for distilling, as they are not considered to be a traditional botanical. However, some distillers have experimented with fennel seeds in the past, to create unique and interesting flavors.

How to use fennel seeds botanical when distilling.

When distilling, fennel seeds can be used to bring out different flavor notes and aromas in the spirit. To use, simply add the fennel seeds directly into the still when you’re distilling. Use a ratio of about 1/4 teaspoon of seeds per liter of distillate. Remember to always strain your distillate after distillation to ensure that you remove any seeds that may have made it through the distilling process.
