Because Art in the Age isn’t a licensed liquor store, you can’t actually buy Root on-site. (Most sales come from the internet.) Grasse’s work-around? To sample the spirit at private events — several per month — and to bake it into goodies for sale at the shop and local farmer’s markets. Artisan chocolatiers John & Kira batch these anise-tinged squares at their nearby factory.
