Ricard

“I gave my name because I’m sure of the quality of my pastis and proud of its flavour” explained Paul Ricard. And it seems the bet paid off, as Ricard is now the best-selling aniseed-based spirit in the world.

Know-how

Ricard’s ingredients - star anise, liquorice extracts and aromatic plants - are carefully selected to ensure the quality of every bottle. Ricard owes its reputation to its original recipe, which remains a closely guarded secret to this day.

History of Ricard

1932
1984
2011

At the age of 23, Paul Ricard produces his famous “pastis of Marseille” recipe, which perfectly reproduces the flavour and purity of anise. He also invents the first French “long drink” - one part Ricard to five parts water.

The world-famous brand celebrates its one billionth bottle.

The bottle is redesigned to recall the cartouche of the Ricard logo, which forms its base. The unique Ricard logo is also embossed in the glass hollow formed by the flanks of the bottle, reflecting the indelible mark the brand has made over the years.
