Anis de Flavigny Rose Pastilles
Anis de Flavigny Rose Pastilles are coated with fine layers of sugar and an all-natural Rose flavoring, featuring an aniseed in its center. These Mints, made with extract from Rose petals, are just the thing for delicate and pleasant breath. The oval tin represents a love story between a shepherd and his beloved shepherdess.
This candy, consisting of a grain of aniseed coated in sugar, is perhaps the oldest in France, mentioned in a document as early as 872. In the 17th century, when the candy was manufactured by Ursuline sisters, six months were needed to add and dry the successive coats of sugar. Today, the factory is still situated at the heart of the ancient abbey, but the process is completed in only 15 days.
