I can think of no better (pre) New Year's resolution.

So if you received my little booklet, you may have noticed that for the Dr. Funk recipe it lists Ojen as an ingredient, and that I note Ojen is no longer available.

However, recently two different companies are making Ojen again.

A Belgian company, La Finca Giralda is making it, and I think they're actually making it in Ojen, Spain:

Also, Sazarac is making a version:

I don't know the availability of either beyond their immediate production areas (or how close either product is to the original), but you might want to make a note in the book that it's now available.

Can anyone tell me more about Ojen? What exactly differentiates it from other anise-liquers?
