It also aims to widen access by making these courses affordable and easily accessible.

It is typically made by distilling neutral grain spirits with herbs, predominately anise, florence fennel and grande wormwood. Other herbs such as angelica root, coriander, dittany leaves, hyssop, juniper, nutmeg, melissa, star anise, sweet flag, and veronica are also used. The color of the distillate is clear and is often bottled this way in a style known as Blanche or la Bleue, but it is also often found with a bright green hue. The coloring is added, either through the chlorophyll from steeping herbs like hyssop, melissa and petite wormwood in the liquor or adding artificial coloring.
