DISTILLERS ET DOMAINES DE PROVENCE SPIRITS
One of the original absinthe and pastis distilleries which has preserved the traditional processes of producing artisan vermouths and liqueurs. Henri Bardouin is a genuine 'grand cru du pastis' (45% abv) made from a complex recipe of 48 natural herbs and spices at Forcalquier in Provence, an area officially recognised for the fine quality and diversity of its natural herbs. Each herb and spice selected for pastis Henri Bardouin is slowly and individually infused with alcohol including the dominant flavour of star anise. Following the ban of absinthe in France in 1914, absente was introduced in 1995 as the first legal absinthe. At 55% abv absente is well balanced with a delicate, fresh aroma and subtle flavours of anise, mint and spice.
