Finding spirit of anise in Toronto

magnumopus1 | Jan 6, 2012 10:28 PM

Where can I purchase pure spirit of anise in Toronto for baking (eg.genettis, pizelle)? I previously procured it from a pharmacy who's supplier no longer carries it (possibly made by Wiler chemicals). After searching other pharmacies & specialty food stores (such as the Cheese Boutique) in vain, I tried 'flavorganics' organic anise extract from Whole Foods which is not a pure extract of anise - but also contains agave syrup and licorice root .. however the flavour in the finished product was subpar and rather bland. I found on the web that McCormick makes a pure extract but it seems to be only available in the USA. Can anyone help?
