See the previous review about the low percentage of alcohol. I have just ordered and received a bottle and it was 40% alcohol as advertised, so I'm happy. Pernod a bit of an acquired taste. I mix it 5:1 with water.
Confusion over % alcohol
Pernod Aniseed Liqueur 21% alcohol is not the same as Pernod Anise Spirit Drink 40%. On the website the photo of the Liqueur 21% does not correspond with the product detail below which is 40%. It is the 40% Anise Spirit Drink that i would like to order, the one that the French drink, not a sweeter, weaker version.
