Anisette (also anis, and Anisetta in Italy) is an anise-flavored liqueur mainly consumed in France, Italy, Portugal, Mexico, and Spain. It is sweeter than most anise-flavored liqueurs (such as pastis), and also has a lower alcohol content (typically 25% by volume, versus 40%). Like pastis, it was first created to replace absinthe. Marie Brizard is a well-known brand of French-style anisette. Anís del Mono is a beloved Spanish brand. Sambucca Romana is one of Italy's versions. Anisette is a sweet liqueur made by macerating 16 different seeds and plants and blending the maceration with a neutral spirit and sugar syrup. Anisette should not be confused with pastis, which is made using star anise rather than aniseed.
