Ricard Pastis ReviewRicard Pastis
A refreshing aperitif, Ricard is a long-time favorite in France and the 4th largest spirit in the world. The principal ingredient of Ricard is star anise, a rare spice that grows near the southern Chinese border and in the north of Vietnam. Others include licorice from Syria and aromatic herbs from Provence. The original secret recipe, composed of a blend of natural ingredients, is unaltered since its creation by Paul Ricard in 1932.
Buy Ricard Pastis
To fully appreciate the unique blend of anise, liquorice and the herbs of Provence, mix one part Ricard with five parts water and ice. The first aromatic blast is seductively anise-like, then it mellows, turning softer, more herbal, and plumper. At palate entry the intensely bitter taste of anise both enlivens and cleanses the palate. Finishes elegant and smooth.

Pernod Pastis ReviewPernod Pastis
Pernod is actually a successor of absinthe, the potent liquor that contained a toxic oil from wormwood in quantities that were thought to cause brain damage — and which was outlawed in 1915 in France. One of absinthe’s leading manufacturers, Henri Pernod, then focused its efforts on the lower-alcohol, wormwoodless, anise-flavored Pernod.

Pastis is an anise-flavored liqueur and apéritif from France normally diluted with water before drinking, generally five volumes of water for one volume of pastis. The nose reveals waves of anise, fresh garden herbs, carnations, fennel and licorice. With the addition of water, it turns milky-opaque and has a long, licorice-like finish.

Herbsaint Liqueur reviewHerbsaint Liqueur
Herbsaint is an anise-flavored liquor currently produced by the Sazerac Company and originally made in New Orleans, Louisiana. Herbsaint was originally produced under the name “Legendre Absinthe”, although it never contained Grande Wormwood but the U.S. Government soon objected to Legendre’s use of the word “absinthe”.

In 1933, “Herbsaint,” a pastis, was made according to a French recipe; “Herbsaint” was so named for the New Orleans term for wormwood – “Herb Sainte.” Pure anise, hazelnut, potting soil, and fennel aromas with a supple, mildly sweet medium-to-full body and a resonant black licorice, mineral and pepper finish with touch tingling heat. Very straightforward and pure anise flavor that will work well in cocktails.

Absente reviewRicard
Thanks to its inimitable taste and unique processing, Ricard pastis has become the aperitif market leader. Ricard pastis owes its reputation to a unique recipe that has remained a secret since it was created. It stands out especially through the quality and variety of its natural ingredients.

The principal ingredient of Ricard is star anise, a rare spice that grows near the southern Chinese border and in the north of Vietnam. The quality and harmony of the ingredients are the reason for its success and unique flavor. This refreshing beverage is traditionally served with 5 parts water and 1 part Ricard, making it “The French Milk” due to its cloudy, white appearance.
