Classic French aperitif. Waves of honeyed tropical fruit and glace cherries with smashed sauvignon grapes and floral notes. Starts out sweet and moves into a dry zesty almost zingy finish.
Pernod was created to sate the appetite of the French for aniseed. Without the inclusion of notorious wormwood Pernod could be enjoyed once absinthe was banned and its strong and distinct flavour ensures it’s still enjoyed today. Turning cloudy when water is added to improve the taste, Pernod is rich with aniseed, rooty liquorice and fennel working in perfectly harmony. The herbal complexity of each drink makes it even more enjoyable and helps temper the intensity of the liquorice.
Uncompromisingly dry, refreshing and distinctive, Tio Pepe is the perfect partner for savoury nibbles, olives, fried fish, Spanish ham and of course tapas. Tio Pepe is best enjoyed within a year of bottling.
