The Pernod distillery in Thuir

The Pernod distillery in Thuir is located in one of the historic homes of the brand near Perpignan, in Southern France. The distillery is part of Pernod’s factory where Suze, Byrrh and the firm’s wine-based aperitifs, are produced. It was officially opened in October 2013.
Pernod began the 2-year long construction of the site after the French law-makers voted to lift the nation-wide ban in 2011.
