As I understand it, laudanum was an extract of green anise and opium poppy, and when sensibly made, it was fragrant tasty.

The only thing I know (or knew) about Laudanum is that it's a alcoholic tincture of opium and that it's not available here in Sweden, and I don't think anywhere in western Europe.

About green anise, I don't know? Wikipedia (at least) doesn't mention it. (Link here)

Top five brands so far:
Jade (PF) 1901 | Grön Opal | Vit Opal | Libertine 72 | Duplais Balance.
(I guess I'll have to give Nouvelle-Orléans one more try for the sake of fairness.)

Kirk, I think you might be thinking of paragoric

[/quote]Paregoric is sometimes confused with Laudanum, because their chemical names are similar: Camphorated Tincture of Opium (Paregoric) vs. Tincture of Opium (Laudanum). However, Laudanum contains 10 milligrams of morphine per milliliter, 25 times more than Paregoric. Confusion between the two drugs has led to overdose and deaths in several patients. Thus the term "Paregoric" should be used instead of "Camphorated Opium Tincture," since the latter may be confused with Laudanum

that is made with anise oil, and I remember it (looong time ago) tasting like licorice .

Y'know, that makes me think, since the ban on absinthe was found to be a lot of poppy-cock and lifted/repealed/worked-around, maybe these poppy products can find a new legality in the future.

Re-legalize paregoric!

A fine absinthe is the product of knowledge, craftsmanship, and talent. An exceptional absinthe is the product of those things plus obsession. Most absinthe is the product of marketing.

Note the Paregoric contains roughly 1-1/2 grains of opium per fluid ounce, Laudanum 45-1/2. Paregoric was a medicine mostly for children. I could have had a whole box of those Paregoric bottles, but settled for one - the rest went to the dump - all the alcohol had evaporated, but you can see the opium in the bottom of the bottle.

I'd be interested in a Laudanum bottle.

How would the early producers make this product with "anise oil", was anise oil used by the early apothecaries?
The way I understood it, equal amounts of green anise seed and ground poppy are steeped in high proof alcohol, the result is filtered and evaporated leaving a substance commonly known as laudanum.
