An excellent spirit. This is infact my first venture into aniseed based liquors and it was excellent (although I'm still getting used to liquorice flavor). Mother-in-law, who is more familiar with Ouzo, felt this was waay better quality. Surprisingly, I found the shot of Arak was better tasting than the tradition method of serving it mixed with water (1-3 portions respectively). More of a special occasion drink than an everyday drink.

Many people aren't familiar with Arak. The more common iteration being Greek Ouzo. Regardless of the region, this is head and shoulders above the commonly available anise spirits. Made by a small family run vineyard with the intention of restoring tradition into what they are making, this Arak shows their care and exhibits what this aperitif can be.
