Pernod was the original producer of Absinthe for the cafes and restaurants of 19th century Paris. With this history in mind, they now distill a contemporary version keeping as close as possible to the original recipe's combination of anise, herbs and spices. It is dark green like the original and needs some cold water to help lighten up the 68% alcohol content.

I first heard of Pernod Absinthe on a list of '10 absinthes you should try'; Pernod was at the top of the list, and I can see why! This is indeed quite a good absinthe! But be warned: It packs a punch, and you don't see it coming!
The flavor is complex from start to finish and unlike some other absinthes out there, it didn't taste like rubbing alcohol or anything else you shouldn't be drinking.
If I have one complaint it would be that the anise flavor is a bit on the strong side, but if prepared properly, Pernod is very enjoyable - in moderation! This stuff is really strong!
