Massaya Arak 750ml

Massaya Arak

We select exclusively the finest white juice-filled Obeidi grapes, the product of local indigenous vines, ideal for the making of arak. The grapes are hand-harvested in September, mechanically destemed and gently crushed in a mechanized press to obtain the best Obeidi juice.

The better the wine, the better the arak. Our on-site oenologist conducts a fermentation of about 15 days, combining 21st century technology with traditional methods. The Obeidi juice is thus transformed into wine.

FOOD MATCHES: Mediterranean mezze and other cuisine, or simply as an aperitif.SERVING TEMPERATURE: best drunk very cold, often diluted with water, and served with plenty of ice cubes or crushed ice.

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.
