Arak Raki


Description / Tasting Notes:

Although the discovery of distillation is still disputed, it is just possible that some form of Raki was the very first spirit! Arak is not really one drink, but a generic name for a group of clear distillates. A superb aniseed experience based on a multi-distilled smooth grape spirit. A fabulous pastis, creating beautiful “louche” when water is added.

Raki should be drunk in fairly abstemious measures. It is not generally served chilled and it is safer to sip it appreciatively rather than down it in one. In Turkey, Raki is the national drink and is traditionally consumed with chilled water on the side or partly mixed with chilled water. Raki is commonly consumed alongside meze, a selection of hot and cold appetizers. It is especially popular with seafood, variety of red meat dishes like kebabs.
