Lemercier Pastis 1811 45% - 1L
The name 1811 comes from the year the Lemercier family distillery was founded in 1811. This pastis, with an alcoholic strength of 45% is an homage to the history and experience of the family, and their expertise producing absinthe and spirits. The label shows the coat of arms of the Lemercier family.
Pastis 1811 is made not only with anise, but also wormwood, liquorice, fennel, gentian and star anise. This gives it a very well rounded taste, and the difference compared to mass produced pastis is clear.
Pastis 1811 comes not just in an attractive bottle and elaborate label, but in a decorative box, making it ideal as a present.
Colour: Before adding water, 1811 pastis is an attractive amber colour.
Aroma: Anise, fennel and a subtle sweetness tickle the nose.
Louche: The louche happens quickly, like an explosion, colouring the pastis a golden yellow.
Flavour: Anise, fennel and a hint of wormwood make for a fresh and pleasant taste-experience!
Finish: A long anisey finish.
Conclusion: A wonderful pastis, which because of its complexe mixture of herbs is somewhat atypical, yet remains a classic pastis in all senses. After the first sip, you will want more.

Nicolas started distilling absinthe around the same time, however, he had to stop during 1915 due to the worldwide ban of absinthe.
