TYPES OF PERNOD ABSINTHE AVAILABLE:
HOW YOU SHOULD DRINK IT:
- In cocktails (Absinthe Frappé, Corpse Reviver No. 2, Death in the Afternoon, Sazerac)
- With a bit of water
- While Pernod’s absinthe is not hallucinogenic, it’s not for the faint of heart-it’s 136-proof.
- The brand calls itself the “original absinthe,” since its founder Henri-Louis Pernod helped create the first commercial absinthe distillery in 1798.
- The spirit is flavored with three-main ingredients: wormwood, fennel and star anise.
- Absinthe was banned in the United States in 1912. Pernod reintroduced its spirit to America in 2007 after it became legal again.
