Prince Pastis de Marseille
Anis liqueurs are the most popular liqueurs in France and the Mediterranean countries. Absinthe was the classic anis spirit. Smooth, full flavored, with a very refreshing edge, Prince Pastis is a true classic, and is also an extraordinary ingredient in culinary recipes, from pastries to marinades.
Anise is an annual plant long cultivated for its aromatic and medicinal qualities and one of the herbs that was supposed to avert the evil eye. Absinthe is perhaps the most notorious liqueur produced from anise. Absinthe hit its peak during the years from 1880-1914, a period considered to be the “great collective binge” for absinthe, and an era of inspiration and daring, was associated with the artistic life and was even used as an aphrodisiac.
