Pernod Spiritueux Anise 750ml


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, named for founder Henri Louis Pernod, was once Pernod Fils, the premier name in absinthe worldwide until the absinthe ban of 1905 that was enacted in the US and much of Europe. Though the distillery was built in 1805, the business deal that launched Pernod Fils was even earlier, in 1797. Though absinthe never quite recovered in popularity from the blow the ban dealt, Pernod found a way around this hardship by making a liqueur d'anis that has revived the company's business.
