Pernod Absinthe

70cl | 68% ABV | France

A traditional Absinthe 'Verte', inspired by Pernod's original Pernod Fils recipe that was the most revered Absinthe until the spirit was banned in 1915.

Grassy, floral and overall drier than many other Absinthes. Wormwood adds its woody, herbal bitterness, while hyssop, and lemon balm lift the flavours before a bitter herbal anise finish. Mix with water before drinking (and go easy, it's 68% ABV!).

About this product

It's made by macerating herbs such as Pontarlier wormwood in neutral spirit, distilling, then steeping additional herbs before being filtered and bottled. No artificial colours are used, the green tint is obtained through maceration with nettles.

Considered by many as the original absinthe makers - founder Henri-Louis Pernod helped create the first commercial absinthe distillery in 1798. Today the brand remains under the Pernod Ricard group.

Pernod Absinthe is made in Thuir today. During the French Belle Époque, it became so synonymous with absinthe, the brand represented the benchmark by which all others were judged. Matisse, Van Gogh, Gaugin, Renoir - this is what they were sipping!
