The history of pastis is closely linked to that of absinthe.

The alcohol content was unfortunately too low to bring out the full flavor of the anise alcohols. 1938, when the legal alcohol content rose to 45 °, the flavors of anise could come out and it was in this period that the first pastis was produced.
