Product Description


Gentian Root (Gentiana L.) is a genus of plants with many species which occur in alpine habitats in temperate regions of Asia, Europe, and the Americas. The flowers of the plant are usually deep blue, but also can be white, cream, yellow, or red.

Gentian, one of the “bitter” herbs, has been used by herbalists for over 2,000 years. Due to its unusual taste, is most often used to make alcohol extracts (some spirits, vermouth wine, and beer).
