The perfect balance of 65 plants and spices, one plant is the basis of Pastis: anise. Drinks based on anise were traditionally made in families from plants available in the environment.
These plants were placed to macerate in alcohol and the infusion obtained was used to give a scent to the water and to refresh. These recipes, more or less complex and varied from family to family, incorporated all anise plants (star anise, green anise, fennel, etc.). Drink as an aperitif, completed with water. Generally, six volumes of cold water are added for one volume of pastis.
