In 1805 (the date on the label), Henri-Louis Pernod established The Maison Pernod Fils distillery in Pontarlier to produce Pernod Absinthe. This modern day Pernod Absinthe is made using an interpretation of his 19th Century recipe at the historic Caves Byrrh Distillery using Pontarlier wormwood.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/02/2016


Clear pale green, louches when water is added.


Grassy and floral with violet blossom. Fennel, coriander and aniseed. With water: anise, fennel and coriander. Still grassy but floral aromas are more subdued. Clean and fresh.


With water: Dry and slightly on the bitter side. Woody herbal wormwood notes are freshened and lifted by coriander and aniseed.


Long, slightly bitter, woody herbal finish.


Drier than many of its competitors with a distinctive herbal wormwood bitterness - Pernod Absinthe benefits from a little sugar so water your cube judiciously.
