The original Absinthe has returned, brining the original formula back to a thirsty world.

Pernod Ricard is the second largest producer of Wines and Spirits in the world. But it all started when Henri Louis Pernod acquired the formula for a "medicinal Spirit" from Dr. Pierre Ordinaire in 1797. He created the world’s first Absinthe Distillery in Switzerland and Pernod Fils quickly became the top selling Absinth in the world. After the demonization of Absinth in 1912 (long story), he quickly pivoted to Anise-flavored Aperitif Spirits — two of them to be precise: Pernod Anise and Ricard Pastis. They were so similar folks called them both Pernod Ricard and the name stuck. Since then they have developed hundreds of new products and acquired hundreds more to become the enviable giant they are today.

"Real" Absinth was illegal in most of the world for a decade. Several pseudo-Absinths were around trading on the name and reputation. Then in the late 1990s cooler scientific heads started to prevail and old prohibitions started to be repealed. In 2013 Pernod Ricard brought back the original formula for their Pernod Fils Absinth, now named Pernod Absinth Superior.

Pernod Absinth is built upon French Eaux de Vie Spirit. The primary botanical ingredients include lemon balm (Melissa), hyssop, Pontique wormwood, fennel, star anise, and green nettles, among other minor contributors. It has a natural green color and is bottled at 68% ABV.
