Clear in the glass, this French liqueur takes on a milky hue when water is added. It has strong licorice and anise aromas, with sweet flavors to match. Though the precursor to this offering dates back to 1805, this version does not contain wormwood like traditional absinthe. It is great sipped as a digestif neat or over ice, and is also a nice addition to cocktails, including the classic Sazerac.
About the Producer
Pernod Ricard is a French producer of distilled spirits. It was founded by Henri-Louis Pernod in 1797, who opened an absinthe distillery in Switzerland in 1797. In 1805, he launched Maison Pernod Fils in Pontarlier, France, and began production of absinthe. In 1932, Paul Ricard founded Ricard, which soon became France’s favorite long drink and a competitor of Pernod. In 1975, the two rival companies merged to form Pernod Ricard. Today, it is a worldwide conglomerate, owning many spirits brands including Absolut Vodka, Jameson Irish Whiskey and Beefeater Gin.
