Pernod anise

Pernod-AniseThe Portman Group issued a warning in July this year to UK retailers warning them not to stock the Pernod anise brand as it was found in breach of alcohol marketing rules.

The regulatory body warned that Pernod had failed to communicate its alcoholic nature with “absolute clarity” since the abv printed on the front of the bottle was “not legible” due to the colour of the text.

However, Pernod Ricard’s UK arm hit out at the Portman Group’s decision to issue an official Retailer Alert Bulletin, claiming this was akin to “using a sledgehammer to crack a nut”. Pernod anise will be available once its packaging has been modified.
