Cocktails and Tropezian Drinks
The name of our pastis comes from an old expression used by bowlers, as each game is played to 13 points, with '12/12' corresponding to the 'match ball' for both teams.
Pastis 12/12 is the story of a group of childhood friends from Saint-Tropez, all pastis connoisseurs and amateur boulistes. It's the memory of their elders from Italy preparing their homemade pastis by adding a drop of Amaretto, a speciality from their homeland. It's the story of a memorable game on the Place des Lices in Saint-Tropez that came down to the last point, after the thunderous announcement '12/12, match ball! It's the story of a gamble, the decision to relaunch a traditional pastis inspired by the recipe of the old-timers and to entrust the design of its bottles to the artist Quentin Monge, a Tropezian at heart and childhood friend of the founders. Pastis 12/12 is a blend of all these stories and those yet to be written. Which is just as well, because 'Pastis' is the Provençal expression for 'mixture' !
Chic & Popular
The Pastis 12/12 brand combines vintage objects with contemporary design. Glass pastis carafes from the 1950s were the inspiration for the shape of the Pastis 12.12 bottles.
The decorations, specially designed by Quentin Monge, are contemporary and illustrate moments in life on the Presqu'île de Saint-Tropez.
Exclusive to the brand, the Pastis 12/12 bottle stopper is more than just a bottle closure.
A real fun object, the stopper has a dual purpose, closing the bottle but also... playing boules thanks to its detachable peg.
