Pastis Henri Bardouin is a refreshing aperitif made from alcohol, sugar, star anise essence, plant alcoholic and spices and sagebrush infusion. Harvesting plants: Some plants, such as thyme, rosemary, savory or sage are harvested in the same soil of Forcalquier. The place and the exact date of the harvest vary each year. Some, however, always come from the same place, such as Forcalquier lemongrass verbena. Others, including spices of course, come from more distant countries, such as China for star anise or Syria for liquorice. Maceration: From harvested and dried plants, we extract the aromatic principles by letting them macerate in a hydro alcoholic mixture (water + alcohol). The temperature, the time, the degree of alcohol and the quantity of plants make it possible to obtain the desired taste. The finished infusion is withdrawn. In our press, we separate the liquid part (infusion) of the plant part. Distillation: After maceration, the plants still contain many aromas and essences. It is by distilling them in our old still that we will extract them. The blend: It is by mixing infusions and distillates of plants and spices that we obtain the Pastis Henri Bardouin.

His mouth: A frank attack of plants and a more structured evolution due to the presence of mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) and more complex due to the presence of spices, to finish with a good aromatic persistence. Its complexity and finesse make pastis Henri Bardouin a true pastis tasting. The balance between the 65 plants and spices that compose it is perfect. Its intensity is powerful and its elegant aromatic profile. Pastis Henri Bardouin leaves his taster on a complex and spicy aromatic finish. Preservation: There is no expiry date. The pastis becomes slightly browner after opening, without altering its aromatic characteristics. Avoid storing it at a temperature above 25 ° C and below 10 ° C (do not refrigerate) because of the chaffing of anethole.
