Angelica root is a botanical ingredient used in the production of certain alcoholic beverages, such as gin and absinthe. It is one of the botanicals or flavoring agents added to the base spirit during or after distillation to impart its unique flavor and aroma. Here's how angelica root is typically used in the distillation process of gin and absinthe: Botanical Blend: In gin production, a variety of botanicals, including angelica root, are added to the base spirit. These botanicals contribute to the gin's flavor profile. Angelica root provides a earthy, herbal, and slightly spicy flavor to gin. Maceration or Vapor Infusion: Botanicals like angelica root can be added to the base spirit in one of two ways. They may be macerated, which involves soaking them in the spirit to extract their flavors, or they can be added to the still's vapor basket or chamber. In vapor infusion, the heated alcohol vapor passes through the botanicals, picking up their flavors and aromas. Distillation: The mixture of base spirit and botanicals is then distilled in a still. The distillation process separates the alcohol from the botanicals, and the resulting distillate carries the flavors and aromas of the botanicals with it. Dilution and Bottling: After distillation, the spirit may be diluted to the desired alcohol content and bottled. It may also undergo additional processes such as filtration or aging, depending on the type of spirit being produced.

With its earthy aroma, Angelica Root can is a popular choice for perfumes and incense. Or, you can pop into a potpourri blend as a fixative.
