Orris Root Granules




Although often used in fragrances and cosmetics, orris is an essential ingredient in gin manufacture, and is also included in Moroccan recipes.

Other Common Names

Florentine Iris. Botanical Name: (Iris Germanica florentina)

Description & Use

Orris Root Granules are made from the root of a variety of iris. The aroma is sweet, fragrant and has a faint cosmetic-like smell. The flavour is similarly sweet with a touch of bitterness. Orris Root Granules are used along with coriander seed and juniper berries, and other exotic botanicals to make gin. The powder is also a fixative when blended with essential oils when making pot-pourri, however its most exotic application is in the Moroccan spice blend known as Ras el Hanout. Orris Root Granules are quite strong, so they are best used sparingly.

Produce of Morocco packed in Australia.
