The root of the Iris Germanica flower, commonly known as the bearded iris, is also known as Orris root, and is a time honored addition to many gin recipes.
Providing a subtle taste, described by some as a binder, or fixative for the rest of the gin flavor, Orris is highly prized by many famous distilleries. Fixatives like Orris allow the other aromatics in your gin basket to develop more nuance against the larger flavor profile. We highly recommend adding a small amount of Orris root to your gin botanical bill!
