PRODUCTION DETAILS: The history behind this liqueur dates back to 1951, when France finally lifted the ban on all anise-based aperitifs, hence the commemorative name. Pastis 51 1L is obtained by a delicate process of maceration of star anise brought from China or Vietnam, along with the finest selection of provencal aromatic herbs, and pure water, accompanied by the finest touch of fennel, liquorice from the East Forest, and African kola nut. The uniqueness of the fabrication process, brought by the maceration of the ingredients prior to undergoing a double distillation, gives this spirit a signature refreshing character unlike any other of the sort. The name derives from the French word pastisser, which translates to mix, and is appropriate since the original manner of serving was diluted in still water. Great aromas and a wonderful flavour, this spirit is meant to be enjoyed, whether it is neat and chilled, or blended with a touch of water to bring out its true nature.
Pernod Ricard is the second largest group in the world for the production and distribution of wines and spirits. The group was formed in 1975 from the merger of the two largest French aniseed aperitif producers, Pernod and Ricard. The decision to join forces rather than continue to compete proved to be a winning strategy!More about the Producer
