DESCRIPTION
  • Created in 1811, during Napoleon’s reign, the Distillerie Lemercier is one of the oldest family distilleries in France. They, like many distilleries of the time, began with Absinthe production. Although Absinthe made many distilleries wealthy throughout this era, it was (erroneously) thought to make people go mad and was the subject of heated debates, leading it to finally being banned in 1915. But through a simple modification of the  Absinthe recipe, Pastis came into being, and became a proud tradition for Distillerie Lemercier. A unique Pastis, as much for its fine and delicate taste as for its history, through the centuries.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    TASTING NOTES

    Sweet aromas of liquorice, and woodland herbs in harmony with light floral notes. The palate is rich and bold with lifted aniseed, coupled with herbaceous characters and woody tones. Before the addition of water, Pastis 1811 is a deep amber colour. With water, it becomes a golden yellow. The flavours of anise, fennel and a touch of wormwood create a fresh and aromatic taste experience.

  • REVIEWS

    'Light tawny in colour. Focused and pronounced aromas of aniseed, herbs, grass and woodland come forth on a sweetly scented and assertive nose. Concentrated and deeply flavoured on the palate with an amazingly vivid assault of aniseed and licorice flavour, along with harmonious background notes of alcohol and sugar. A wonderfully complete example.'
