      All the European ones perhaps, but the Columbians in South America
      have had one since the mid 1600's. Possibly one of the oldest White
      Rums, Aguardiente is made from sugar cane molasses and aniseed.

      Perhaps the anise idea was added through contact with Spanish
      colonists, it's not known for certain. But the natives of the area
      certainly had distilled liquor before colonization. Archeologists
      have unearthed crude bottles in digs from well before the time of the
      Conquistadors. Much of South America's early history is still a
      mystery.


      Slainte!

          Bolivian (& Columbian) anisado is Spanish influenced. Possibly the
          base spirit is sugarcane based unlike the grape based Spanish original.
          Although Central and South American indigenes had fermented alcoholic
          beverages there is no proof that they distilled prior to European
          colonisation.
          Aguardiente is Spanish for the Latin 'aqua ardente' (burning water).
          It is a generic term.
