Sorry to disagree, but Pastis and Pernod are both brand names for the same
thing.  Both are imported into the US (appx $17/750ml) and are the same
strength.

It is true that the usual method of drinking either one is to cut it 1:x with
water in a tall glass (x being anywhere from 3 to 10 depending on personal
taste, bars usually give you 1:4 or so) and sometimes ice cubes.  "mixed" drinks
can also be made with it, a "tomate" (tomato) by adding Grenadine, and a
"perroquet" (parrot) by mixing with creme de menthe.  Usually drunk in the
summer as a cooling drink.
