The guided Pastis Tour

Pastis  not only stands for the French way of Art de Vivre” and singing cicadas, but also for an apéritif in the early evening,  for interesting stories and Mediterranean love of life.  Marseille, home of the pastis invites to taste and degust. And so, there is so much to discover in der capital of anise-flavored spirits.

Here, where Paul Ricard, produced his pastis, a few years ago, a a modern and vibrant city expects us today. Cosmopolitan charm and joie-de-vivre characterise the oldest French town. During our discovery tour we walk through the native town of the Pastis: In addition to the visit of the oldest pastis producer, we are going to participate in a fascinating tasting and explore the boutique with a comprehensive range of pastis and absinthe.

Pastis has a long history, closely linked with the Provence and  Marseille. Already at the beginning of the 20th century, the anise spirits were served in  local bistros, taverns and bars.

Over the decades the southern French summer nectar, has opened a new chapter in the history of the Pastis, with more and more complex flavours and recipes, which we are going to discover during our tour. An unforgettable experience.
