Made by triple distilling a wine made from Obeidi grapes in a vine wood fired Moorish copper still before macerating aniseed in the spirit and allowing it to rest in clay amphorae for many months. To serve, mix with water like Turkish Raki (the producer suggests 2:1, or 6:1 for a longer refreshing aperitif) and add ice. Perfect with spicy and strong flavoured mezze.
Drinking distilled spirits, beer, coolers, wine and other alcoholic beverages may increase cancer risk, and, during pregnancy, can cause birth defects.
