2022 Garagai Pastis
Region: Rhone Valley
Pastis is anise-flavoured French spirit local to the south of France. In recent years it's been dubbed the 'unofficial drink of Summer' as French folk drink it en masse chilled over ice on the hottest of days. Distillerie Garagai makes their Pastis by infusing high-quality neutral spirit with anise and other organically grown botanicals from the Sainte-Victoire dans les Bouches-du-Rhône including lemon thyme, mugwort, bay leaf, coriander and more. The end result is sweetened with a touch of lavendar honey. Do as the French do.
