As an avid enthusiast of all distilled Spirits, especially fine French Spirits, NVD Proprietor, Arthur Hartunian, sought to create is own California inspired homage to French Pastis. The result is our delightful Papillon Pastis which is expertly crafted using a proprietary blend of all natural herbal essences. Papillon Pastis is distinctive in flavor, and in color, as we have bottled it at 40% alcohol. This is just below the point that the full characteristic Pastis louche (clouding) occurs. Enjoy with ice, or served chilled with a splash of water to experience the ultimate "Pastis" effect. A Votre Santé!
