I think even the labels are the same. It is just a clear gimmick to make it more like the other pastis there. Pernod is atrifically colored so to leave that out is easier. I am sure it was only colored to begin with to make it look like absinthe. But they both taste the same...nothing different. Like that clear pepsi that came about a while ago.

So why are there two different products at all?
Different shaped labels on the bottles?

Pernod Blanc and Pernod proper taste exactly the same, nasty Pastis 51 is better.

Ok, is the taste somewhat like "Pernod", or something entirely different??

I believe Pernod Blacn is still being made. It does not seem to be exported however (at least not to the U.S.).

Hi Mr Wormwood!

Fast and good answers as always :-)

In sweden there is only the green Pernodpastis, which is called "Pernod". Do you know how long they made the "Pernod Blanc"? ( If it at all is discontinued! )

Several things happened.

They continued to make absinthe in Spain for several years (Terranoga Pernod)

They sold the absinthe factory to Nestle (I think)

Pernod (pastis) was sold again after the ban in 1920's, but I think it is being made by differant people.

Pernod blanc is clear pastis, Pernod is a greenish-yellow pastis. I not sure but I think Pernod blanc was introduced much later than regular Pernod pastis.

Hi friends!

Itīs been a while since I wrote here, but here we go again:

I wonder about what happened to Pernod *after* the ban? Did they start with their Pastis right away, or was it not until the 20ths that they were allowed to do so?

Is this the same as "Pernod blanc"?

Do any of the historybuffs here know the answer?
