Production Process

Pastis de Marseille is a pastis made by flavouring alcohol with anise, star anise and /or fennel, as well as natural extracts of liquorice root, the latter adding glycyrrizic acid (up to a maximum of 0.5g / litre) and colourants known as chalcones (subject to a minimum of 0.05g / litre).  Other flavouring preparations and natural flavouring substances may also be used.  Pastis has an anethole content of 2g per litre.  (When the new spirit drinks regulation takes effect, i.e. around spring 2021, the anethole content will need to be between 1.9 and 2.1g / litre.)

The process for making pastis de Marseille involves one or a combination of the following: maceration and / or distillation; re-distillation of the alcohol in the presence of the seeds or other parts of the plants; addition of natural extracts of aniseed-flavoured plants.
