Story: The late 19th and early 20th centuries were the golden age of absinthe, a time when this mysterious spirit was hugely popular with the writers and artists of Europe. At that time Pernod Fils was the most popular absinthe, until it was banned in 1915 because of its reputation for being an addictive and hallucinogenic drug. While most absinthe distilleries were forced to shut their doors, Pernod altered the recipe slightly and created this spirit, inspired by the original and remaining popular today.
Made of: Anise spirit
Tasting Notes: Light green in colour with a good louche. The bouquet is herbal and spicy, typically dominated by a liquorice note.
