Pernod Absinthe Essential Facts

  • While Pernod’s absinthe is not hallucinogenic, it’s not for the faint of heart: It’s 136-proof.
  • The brand calls itself the “original absinthe,” since its founder Henri-Louis Pernod helped create the first commercial absinthe distillery in 1798.
  • In late 2013, Pernod Absinthe returned to its original formula. The spirit is now made using the same ingredients as in the early 1800s.
  • Absinthe was banned in the United States in 1912. Pernod reintroduced its spirit to America in 2007 after it became legal again.

  1. In Ireland when I was there, we used to order Pernod mixed with white lemonade, which is similar to something like 7Up, but not quite the same. Recently a place in my community started offering little bottles of something called “French limonade,” which is pretty close in taste to the white lemonade we got in Ireland, so I may try mixing Pernod with that next time I get a bottle.
