Pernod French Pastis Apertif 70cl



The oldest anise liqueur in France, Pernod is made from distillates of star anise, fennel and 14 other botanicals such as coriander and mint. It has a low liquorice content, which sets it apart from pastis. The original version included wormwood and was produced as absinthe at the Pernod Fils factory from 1805. The Pernod liqueur of today was created in 1938, though a reformulated absinthe based on the original recipe was released in 2005. Pernod merged with Ricard in 1975.

Pernod is a brand of pastis, a type of anise-flavored liqueur that is popular in France. It was first created in 1805 by Henri-Louis Pernod in Switzerland and was later produced in France when absinthe, a similar liquor, was banned in the country in 1915.

Pernod is made using a blend of herbs and spices, including star anise, fennel, and wormwood. These ingredients are macerated in alcohol and then distilled to extract their flavors and aromas. The resulting spirit is then blended with pure water and caramelized sugar to create the final product.

Pernod is traditionally served by adding one part of the liqueur to five parts of water, along with ice cubes. This creates a refreshing and aromatic drink that is perfect for sipping on a hot day. The drink is also often served with a slice of lemon or a sprig of mint for added flavor.

Pernod is known for its strong anise flavor, which can be an acquired taste for some. It is also a popular ingredient in cocktails, particularly those that call for a pastis or an anise-flavored liqueur.

Overall, Pernod is a classic French pastis brand that is well-regarded for its quality and flavor. It is a must-try for anyone who enjoys anise-flavored spirits or is interested in exploring the world of pastis.
